    Classes are multi-disciplinary, incorporating English, Math and skill-based learning into our thematic lessons.


    We incorporate interactive activities, songs and rhymes into our lessons which encourage phonetic awareness to help your child read and blend words easily, building a strong foundation and an interest in reading.


    Our lessons include exploratory themes and class discussions to encourage your toddler to be an active listener and an articulate speaker, developing their own voice and perspective.


    Your child will be exposed to a wide range of themes to help your child to draw connections to daily life to get them to think beyond the classroom academia.


    We structure our lessons around investigative problems to help your child draw authentic connections to real-world situations and develop a greater appreciation for the subject.


    After each lesson, parents receive a summary of what was covered in class, as well as suggested activities to reinforce learning at home
