We believe in supporting the growth of the whole child through attention to the development of social and emotional skills, physical development and intellectual growth. We strive not only to provide a solid education foundation for each child, but also instill a love of learning and the confidence necessary to explore our ever-changing world.

Registration packets will be available at Gearity, Noble and Oxford Elementary schools on February 4th and will also be available on the registration tab.
