“We were coming from a bad daycare situation so I was extra critical when touring new schools. From the initial meeting to now being there for a few months the teachers, director and owner are so friendly, creative and most importantly so kind and loving with the children. I cannot explain what a great feeling it is to leave my sons at a place where I don’t have to worry about if they are being taken care of. They also offer hot lunches everyday which is a big help! The school is very clean and my sons are learning a lot each day. It is a great school and I’m very happy we found it” – Kelly

“The art curriculum is incredible! Both of my kids have attended for a week so far and I have nothing but good things to say. After one day there, my older one, who normally thinks that arts and crafts are boring, made me go to Michael’s to pick up supplies, so he can paint and make clay art. He spent hours on this, which is so unusual for him. The art teacher is very inspiring!

The school also provides hot lunches, which is a huge huge plus in my book, as I don’t have to pack it! Both of my kids have multiple food restrictions due to allergies that the school was able to accommodate. Any school or camp that does that is worth its weight in gold in my opinion – families with allergies will know what I mean!!” – Rimma

“From the moment my son and I stepped inside the school, it felt like home away from home. We were greeted by the wonderful staff and were offered a tour. I was very pleased with the cleanliness of this new facility. We met with teachers and toured the classroom where my son would stay for a few hours on his first day. He was drawn to the new toys and started to explore right away. During circle time he learned a new letter, then went over to the play area , and did a few projects in the art room. The teachers are caring, upbeat, knowledgeable and approachable. I was able to stay and watch my little one being engulfed by all the new experiences, and endless possibilities for the education through play. I would highly recommend this school to any parents.” – Marina

“This school is amazing! I had my son in 3 other daycares before I found this one. The owner is very helpful and accommodating she goes above and beyond to help make this place run smoothly. The staff are great too, they really care about the kids. Since day one I never questioned the level of care or attention he was receiving, they are attentive and compassionate towards each kid. There is no other place I would want my son to go to.” – Rasheeda

“teachers are very patient and loving . Love the Montessori way of teaching . My son loves going to school every day .” – Gauri

“Welcoming place and nice staff. My daughter looks forward to go to school even on a holiday. What can I say more!! Next place to home and I am happy choosing this place. Thanks Elina and team for giving the best, safe and nurturing environment for the future super heroes!!” – Ranjit

Why we are different?

Our enrichment programs are designed to take your child’s education to the next level. Our focus on a STEM education as well as our Montessori program have come together to create creative, educational and fun activities that foster a deeper love of learning.

Our art studio is a center of the enrichment art and engineering curriculum in our school. Every day the students get a designated amount of time in the studio in order to foster their creativities, follow their imaginations and work on all sorts of projects. Creative freedom is highly valued as we believe there is no wrong way to do art. We also have a designated professional art teacher who leads the activities. Art has been proven to have so many benefits, especially on child development, and our studio is designed to help each child reap those benefits.

In our preschool, going outside isn’t a break from learning but rather learning in a unique form. Our outside classroom focuses on nature exploration, application of real world skills such as gardening, as well as fostering creative minds. Our farm to table program is a unique aspect of our outdoor learning program as it takes children through the process of growing their own herbs and vegetables and then being able to enjoy them at meal times.
