Children 12 mo to 2.5 years

$45/day | $27.50/Half Day

Our toddler room, called The Toddler Commons, is the heart of our school! Itโ€™s full of whole-body activities that toddlers crave. This space is all about learning how to be a human, and what our own bodies are capable of. This means we get MESSY as we squish mud between our toes, squash paint with our hands, and dig in the sand!

Our toddler classroom has a 5:1 child-to-teacher ratio.


Children 2.5 years to 5+ years

$40/day | $25/half day

Our preschool room is one big room with three smaller areas inside: The Dining Room, The Library, and The Studio. This space invites children to try new things and experiment alongside their peers.
