Opportunities to supplement part time weekend work with a few weekdays is also available. Our program values nature and a connection with the outdoors, as well as confidence, creativity, and the development of pro-social skills.

Our brand new classrooms are filled with natural light, high-quality materials and furniture, and highly qualified educators.
