It’s all about… LITTLE “HANDS-ON”!

Science

Building upon a child’s natural inclination to explore, discover, and question how the world works is the foundation of our hands-on process to observe, predict, and experiment. Engaging a child’s curiosity inspires them to discover the why, what, and when.

Art (Process Art)

Introducing tools and art mediums to promote freedom of expression for the children to use their imagination and create their own masterpiece.

Spanish

Learning a second language can provide cognitive benefits such as improved memory, concentration, and listening skills that will enhance critcal thinking and the ability to multi-task naturally.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Providing a prayerful place in an immersive environment rich with sensory materials that engages a child’s interest and promotes an understanding of God’s love for them.
