We accept children from 12 weeks of age up to 5 years old in our programs. It is our belief that children learn best through play. Our curriculum has been designed from our philosophy to nuture every child's potential. We develop independent thinking skills and self-confidence by guiding the children to work through tasks and problems until they succeed. We offer a unique program based on multiple methodologies. The Russian early child hood program and the Montessori method. We have chosen the best of these “methods” and combined them with our belief that children under 7 years of age need an environment that focuses on their development in social abilities to interact with the world around them; to appreciate the ability to learn and focus on the things that interest them and expand that knowledge in a natural way; and to experience all these things in a beautiful and natural space, more like home and less like the typical cookie cutter classroom. Each month, we introduce topics around a general theme and expand from there based on the reaction of the children to it. All our children meet or exceed the requirements for entry in the kindergarten programs of the communities we serve. It is typical for our children to begin reading in the 4th year as well as play games of strategy like chess, checkers and backgammon. Come here and ask our 4 and 5 year olds about the solar system or the human body and you will get a response about the planets or the large intestines and what they do!For more information, visit our Services page.
