Tinkering and Engineering with Literature
It is our belief that early exposure and getting kids excited about STEM, will help prepare them for future life challenges.
Nature Explorers and Super Science
Our Nature program we seek to foster an appreciation for and love of nature by inviting children to explore the world around them through hands-on, outdoor, experiential learning.
By creating art and looking at it, children gain an understanding of composition, balance, and symmetry. We will learn about different mediums or a famous artist each week and create our own masterpieces.
We will explore size, quantity, symbols, language, symmetry, angles, sorting, measurement, shape, and patterns. On nice weather days, we will use our outdoor space to create and to explore
NEW Little Passports
Little Passports is a geography-based adventure class designed to inspire young travelers to learn more about the world. A package will arrive from a different country each week. It will include cool activities about different cultures and major landmarks, art, coins, animals, souvenirs, stickers, photos and a letter from our friends Sam and Sofia. We will teach the love of travel without ever leaving the classroom.
Little Passports - A Cooking Class
A fun-filled introduction to cooking, geography and global exploration for preschoolers. Join the adventure as we “travel” through our community and explore New York, the United States and the World.
Children will discover the joy of responding with their whole selves to instruments, song, dance, and movement. Taught by talented early childhood specialists.
Once Upon A Story
Our literature program is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the exciting world of children’s literature.

What Our Families are Saying
“They love your program so much I cannot thank you enough for providing such stimulating, entertaining and educational activities.”
“Our daughter talked about you so much when we were in Italy — she had a blast sharing her knowledge about Michelangelo when we were roaming the streets of Pietrasanta – my in-laws were blown away (you got full credit :-))! You really made an impact! She kept hoping we would see you :-). “
“Thank you so much for everything you did this year for our son. He had an amazing experience in your program and learned so much. He would come home talking nonstop about all the fun projects and work you did together. The amount of thought and creativity that you put into each day is incredible and I feel so lucky that he got to be a part of it. “
