All About Us (and everything we do)
"Let my teaching fall like rain and my words come down like dew, like raindrops on new grass, like rain on tender plants." Deuteronomy 32:2
To provide a high quality preschool program that encourages a child's growth academically, socially, physically, and emotionally.
It is through our school bible verse, Galatians 5:22: "The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control", that we meet those goals.
Important MOTOR skills
Fine motor skills- essential for writing in the future: playdough, painting, digging in dirt!
Gross motor skills- a huge missing skill in so many kids (why do so many kids need some sort of therapy?!?!?) Riding bikes, climbing on rocks, nature hikes, balancing, running. Kids need 2-3 hours of THIS each DAY!
Modeled after the prevalent nature schools in other countries, we employ educated teachers specially trained in science and outdoor learning environments. Child-led curiosity and exploration encourages our students to have a passion and love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Let them be LITTLE!
Preschool is the single most important time in a child's life! Not only does it set up students for a successful Kindergarten experience, but for a lifetime of emotional, academic, physical and social success!
There is TOO much pressure in society right now; my child can count to 100, well my child can read. Guess what? NONE of that is important!
Simplicity is key- they will learn to read, they will learn to write- but LET THEM BE LITTLE!
A students quality of learning is greatly dependent on the level of education of their teacher. Surprisingly, to be a preschool teacher requires a minimal education.
