We are located in an elementary school so families can send all of their children age 3 until they graduate 8th grade to one school.
Our lead teaching staff all have bachelor’s degrees and professional licenses, many with a focus in serving children who are English as a second language learners, and our assistant teaching staff all have a minimum of an associate’s degree.
We partner with music providers, the public library, and soccer programs to bring in new experiences for the children.
We provide education and experiences for the entire family such as family literacy night, adult ESL and Career preparation classes, family workshops, family field trips, and more.
Every family is assigned a family support specialist to help them achieve family goals and work together to solve problems.We utilize a project-based curriculum that involves the children’s ideas and interests every step of the way.
Our staff speaks several languages such as Rohingya, Spanish, Hindi, Somali, and Serbian.
