Our Core Four

Explore

Children celebrate the outdoors with nature, gardening, farming, and playing! They are safely guided into the world, so they can forge new exciting experiences. Inside the classroom, they are provided with a wealth of materials and opportunities to explore cultural, social, academic, and creative themes.

Create

Artistic expression allows children to process their experiences, explore their imagination, and express their individuality. Free play with materials designed to spark the child’s creativity encourage them to embrace the most magical time of their lives—childhood.

Learn

Early education sets the stage for a child’s love for learning. Developmentally appropriate materials fill the classrooms, and each teacher has the freedom to adjust to a child’s individual needs to help them succeed. VPK-approved Early Learning & Literacy Model Plus curriculum creates a solid path to Kindergarten-readiness, and is one component of our safe and loving approach to early education.

Grow

At our preschool, children excel academically, socially, and emotionally. Especially in the early education years, setting a solid and secure inner network of self-regulation and compassion is equally important. What looks like “play” to an adult is often a critical learning process for children to learn how to navigate through the world. Guided and supported in a nurturing atmosphere, the whole child is encouraged to grow.
