Our program develops a sense of rhythm through the daily, weekly and yearly seasons. Through rhythm and repetition, children learn to expect and look forward to what is coming next. A rhythmic balance of structured and unstructured time builds a strong sense of well-being, trust and belonging for each child.

Children are guided through weekly activities such as watercolor painting, drawing, clay, nature based crafts, baking, seeding, garden tending, and harvesting.
Through singing, our understanding of the world broadens, deepens, and is internalized. English and Spanish songs and poems are woven into each day.
