Our program uses developmentally appropriate curriculums to foster the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional growth of each child

  • CATCH is a comprehensive program that reinforces healthy food and activity choices in a fun, creative and positive way!
  • Second Step is designed to enhance social/emotional competencies. This research-based curriculum is designed to enhance empathy skills in a social setting.

Children continue to develop in a safe, positive atmosphere, whether playing games, learning through homework assistance, creating arts and crafts and so much more.
