Our Philosophy. . .

“We are dedicated to the ‘whole’ child. Environmental education is integrated into a curriculum, which addresses each child’s individual needs.”


Our preschool program is for ages 3-6. (Three year olds must be potty trained.) There are several choices of classes, 2 or 3 day-per-week programs, and a choice of morning or afternoon time slots. We also have half- and full-day kindergarten, and we also feature 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classes.


We feature low teacher-to-student ratios and offer bright and lively classrooms. We encourage social and emotional growth, and cognitive and language development. For more information or to arrange a tour, please call School Director Kristin Hale at 708.361.8933.
