School Tour this Thursday, May 23rd

If you are interested in our programs and would like to observe our classes please join me on Thursday, May 23rd from 9:15-10:15 AM. 

We will also have time for a discussion about our unique approach to early childhood education. 

To participate please RSVP

Afternoon Nursery Family Sample Session on Saturday, June 8th from 11 AM to 1 PM

Join us for an introduction to our Afternoon Nursery Program!

Families will have time to explore one of our classrooms, meet the lead teacher, enjoy samples of lunches that will be served during the program, share in a brief circle and enjoy a puppet show before we visit our outside play area.  Learn more about our unique approach to early childhood education at this enjoyable family event!

The event is limited to families with children between 30 months and 4 years of age.

The Afternoon Nursery program focuses on the nurturing of the children's body and spirit. We start the day outside, working in the garden and experiencing the seasonal environment. Upon returning to school the children will share in a hearty lunch that their teacher has prepared with organic ingredients. After lunch the children will have rest time which will help them digest the experience of their day. When they awake they will move on to the daily activities such as drawing, water color painting, seasonal crafts, free play, puppet shows and circle.

The program will meet 3, 4 or 5 afternoons a week, noon-4 pm

Please contact me at if you would like to attend the information session or to request more information about the program.
