Our children’s programs are play-based, which research tells us is the most effective way for young children to learn. Diverse learning experiences build the foundations for literacy, math, science, art and music. They also support the development of physical agility, creativity, emotional intelligence and social skills.
What makes us unique is parent involvement. As caregivers participate in the class, they see first-hand how the teacher guides children’s learning, so they can better reinforce the skills and concepts at home. Parents connect to other families, build community, and get support for the ups and downs of family life. Parent education sessions led by skilled college faculty offer evidence-based information balanced with practical tips about parenting and child development.
