We have a dedicated outdoor space with plenty of room for gross motor play, many opportunities for sensory play, and plenty of opportunities for fun and learning! Additionally, our Butterflies class spends most Wednesdays at Cool Creek Park where they take advantage of that park's multiple playgrounds, ample hiking trails, forest and nature center.


Children learn through play, and our classrooms are designed for some serious playing. On any given day, you will find children painting on an easel, building with blocks, creating with play-doh, pretending in the play kitchen, digging in the sensory table, doing puzzles, and reading books. Children are free to move between the different areas to fulfill the play needs they have that day. We also have a large multi-purpose room that we can use for gross motor time when it is too cold to go outside.
