Our Philosophy

Reggio Emilia Inspired

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it.

About Us

Our Programs

  • Investigators Age 3

    Goals of the Investigator Program are designed to introduce young children to a preschool setting that foster’s a supportive school environment, in which children will receive the necessary encouragement to develop increasing levels of independence.

  • Explorers Ages 4-5

    The Explorer Program uses innovative approaches that are designed to spark students interest in generating, exploring and answering queries that help children find answers through exploration, experimentation, and conversation, which all contribute and facilitate to your child’s Kindergarten Readiness.


Afterschool Migrators

The Migrator program is designed to serve the needs of both children and parents who do not need a comprehensive aftercare program for snow days, vacations, etc. Most often our aftercare students are children with parents who are teachers in the school system.
