"Everything is ceremony in the wild garden of childhood"- Pablo Neruda
The Adults Who Make it Happen
Our teachers are highly experienced in guiding children through early exploration. They strive to give each child the time they need to explore, learn and discover the beauty in this world. Our goal is continuity of care, where real relationships can be built. With multi-age group classrooms, your child is with the same teacher, from the time they enroll, until they leave for pre-school. A true family like environment.
