Getting a Head Start

We’re proud to announce that our early childhood education program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). We support the NAEYC’s core beliefs and implement them in our own center.

As early childhood education advocates, we understand the importance of learning early. Research shows that children learn the most from their environment within the first three years and benefit the most from interactive learning.

As a student in our preschool education program, your child will benefit from individual assistance, a safe, interactive environment, and a curriculum that allows for adaptive learning.
