We've been the heart of the community for nearly seventy years, Our vibrant 3- and 4-year-old kindergarten programs foster curiosity, creativity and a love of learning, in a nurturing and intimate environment.



Early learning at our kindergartens 

When children play, they learn how to be independent, interact well with others, and develop lifelong creative and problem-solving skills.


Our programs respond to each child's unique needs and interests, Teachers support children's natural curiosity, creating rich play where they can imagine, explore, discover and wonder.


Spaces designed for learning and exploring

Inside and outside, learning spaces capture children's imagination and encourage them to be thinkers, makers and doers with big ideas.
