Your Child’s Home-Away-From Home
Nearly a Decade Providing Exceptional Quality Care
Operated: We Give
All The Love Of Home
Mother-and-daughter team Patricia and Kallie Norman are co-directors who oversee all aspects of school operations. This dynamic duo ensures that every child who walks through their doors – and every family, too – gets the love, attention, and care they deserve.
Experience In Early Childhood Education Inspires Curricula
With their many years of combined experience in education, the Normans have created a unique blend of teaching philosophies and curricula that allows teachers to focus on a personalized approach for every child.
Connect With The Owners Directly When You Need To
Patricia and Kallie are always available for direct messaging to address your questions and concerns. When they make themselves available to you, you can comfortably rely on their expertise and knowledge that your child is in good hands.
Your Child Grows Through Art, Outdoor Play, & Community
The curriculum includes outdoor free play, art, and plenty of time with friends. Through these activities, your child learns creative problem-solving and self expression. Daily interactions with their peers build children’s social-emotional toolkit.
Through these core values
we have an IMPACT on
the world around us!
Eco-Healthy Child Care® Certified centers adopt practices that help us care for the environment. Instead of bleach, we use PureGreen24™, a hospital-grade, plant-based disinfectant, to keep our school free of dirt and germs. Water is a precious resource, so rain is collected in barrels to water the grass and garden in our yard. Also, a greywater recycling system is in place to process and clean hand-washing water, which will be used again to flush toilets.
Upon entering our Sensory Room, you will notice a large mosaic representing a large tree and nature around it. Small garage doors open up to the outside classroom and garden to let plenty of sunlight and fresh air in. Props, activities, and decorations change in the Sensory Room to match themes studied in the classroom.
The Reggio Emilia concept of 100 Languages speaks to the endless ways a child can create. Art is used as a way of thinking, a channel for children to tangibly express how they understand the world around them. Through the process of creating art, children develop fine motor and problem-solving skills.
Generation Mindful® is a system where caregivers and children work together to identify and reflect on feelings and create an awareness of how emotions affect a person. The Generation Mindful® philosophy aligns well with our beliefs of teaching by example, teaching through play, and that every moment is an opportunity for learning.
Free play and teacher-led exercises indoors, in our yard, and the outdoor classroom focuses on gross motor skills such as running, jumping, spinning, and climbing. Fine motor skills are achieved by creating art, manipulating materials, and playing with loose parts.
