Wee ones

Our youngest students are in a classroom filled with stimulation and multiple opportunities for exploration and discovery.  Through a hands-on approach, children will be exposed to the concept of colors, shapes, numbers, animals, families, and much more.   Their day is filled with craft time, circle time and an abundance of playtime.  Our youngest students are exemplary of our slogan ~ loving, living and learning!
