Where Learning and Joy Come Together!

Our Education for Life philosophy informs our view of children. We see each child as a spark of light, special and unique. We blow on that spark with love and understanding. Children seen in such a deep way can’t help but respond. Our goal is to cultivate mature human beings who can relate to the reality of another and, thus, navigate life’s depths consciously and gracefully.
