We are open Monday through Thursday

Consistency is key in the life of young
children. We encourage continuity of care.
It is very confusing for
children to attend two programs
simultaneously. Each school has a very
specific philosophy, expectations and rules.
Often the children are not sure which
school they are going to daily and what is
expected of them. They like the sense of
belonging/embracing one school. It is not
safe when we are out and about ~ as we
often cross paths with the other schools
and the children are not sure whom to go
with. Lastly, it doubly exposes the children
to many potential illnesses and in turn they
return to their respective preschool
doubling the exposer for all. Now more than
ever, our policy of asking parents not to
have their children attend different
preschools simultaneously is very important.
We have adopted a very strict COVID-19
Safety Plan and ask all parents respect and
adhere to this policy.Thank you!
The good news is that there are many
amazing preschool options for your children.
You cannot make a poor choice and you will
know the best fit for your family.
