We are a child-centered, play-based early childhood program inspired by the Reggio Emilia education philosophy.

We use the Creative Curriculum to support free choice, child-initiated play, individualization and supportive environments. The Creative Curriculum is based on decades of research. They have created "forward-thinking, research-based and research-proven curriculum 



  • Children, along with adults, grow in knowledge through exploration of their physical environment and interactions with people. 

  • We view each child with respect knowing he/she is a capable, learning individual. 

  • Our staff also uses the My Teaching Strategies accompanying assessment tool to track 36 different developmental criteria for each child.
