Early Childhood

For ages 2-6 years

Research shows that the first five years of a child’s life play a crucial role in their physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development. Our early childhood programs provide children a safe and nurturing environment where they can learn through play and exploration.

“Since my first day in an Early Childhood Education classroom 17 years ago, I’ve known that it was what I was meant to do. It brings me great joy to prepare activities for children ages 1-6 which end with a smile or giggle,” Ms. Robyn said. In her free time, Ms. Robyn enjoys reading, working on a variety of craft projects and spending time with her wonderful husband, two amazing children and great friends.
