Our facility is carefully setup to serve as inspiration for children’s explorations. Our environment also serves as an inspiration for designing our curriculum and activities. We believe that the environment is a “third teacher”. Unlike the typical preschool learning centers, each classroom area is built to highlight tools children and teachers can utilize to further their study of a topic and test hypotheses.
Brightwheel is our account management app to allow us to seamlessly manage parent communication, attendance, payments etc. Brightwheel kiosk is used for check-in/checkout and the Brightwheel app for Android/iOS will be used for parent communication, health/status updates and sharing photos/videos.
You can use your Brightwheelapp to make automated ACH transfers through the app for the tuition fees. We also continue to take checks, so please confirm your mode of payments with us. We do not support payments through credit-cards at this time.
The classrooms are organized into Investigation Stations to prompt different types of STEAM exploration. Children are encouraged to move freely about the environment and relocate materials as needed for purposes of investigations. A conscious effort is made to incorporate natural materials and use materials found outdoors to prompt explorations as well as real props rather than toy replicas.
