Our highly acclaimed parent-child program classes, lovingly popularized as "mommy and me classes," are stage-based: intentionally organized by age and milestone in order to best support your child's development from ages 0 to 5 years.

Our independent drop-off programs for preschool aged children ages 2 to 5 years utilize learning through play methods combined with traditional academics taught in the most fun and engaging way possible - all while still being developmentally appropriate and advanced in comparison to other local programs.
