We believe that helping children learn to accept what is beautifully unique about themselves and others is of primary importance.
Developmentally Based Curriculum
Our curriculum utilizes a multi-sensory, hands-on approach to learning. It is planned around the whole child.
Our playground includes a play structure, boat, covered sandbox, covered play area, bikes and scooters, many child-created art pieces, raised planter beds and playhouses.
The teachers do a great job helping the kids with resolving social conflicts and communicating their emotions. The curriculum is well designed. Good balance of creative playtime, learning and outside play time.
When we moved to this area 3 years ago, everyone kept recommending A Child's Way. It clearly had a solid reputation, because they've worked hard to create a healthy, play-based atmosphere for kids.
Well organized, strong communication, and the teachers are amazing.
Amazing school. Amazing teachers. If you have wee ones, check it out. Enroll them. Thank me later.
