What about Summer Camp?
We offer a 6-week summer camp every year. The camp has a similar structure and flow as that of the preschool. We offer a safe, fun, and nurturing setting. The camp has smaller classes than the school year; and it’s a great way to get to know our teachers and staff. Summer camp also offers the benefit of a smoother transition in the fall.

Do you have any toilet training requirements?
Current research suggests that loving and gradual potty training before three years of age is natural and, in fact, healthier for children then the "readiness" philosophy of the 1950s. It is for this reason that we emphasize the importance of toilet training for our preschoolers.
Children entering preschool should be toilet trained by the time they start the program. Children in our toddler program do not need to be toilet trained. If you would like additional information or resources, please contact us.
