Our vision is to continuously serve our communities by providing high-quality, early learning environments for children ages one through five. Our inspired team will work together to build strong foundations and create memorable experiences for our children.
We love and use the Learning Beyond Paper curriculum, which is a nationally recognized and approved curriculum. This curriculum is based on a strong foundation of research and theory as well as supported by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Along with the Learning Beyond Paper curriculum guide, we incorporate customized, age-appropriate curriculum additions that include, but are not limited to SC Good Start, Grow Smart Early Learning Standards, kindergarten readiness, healthy living, literacy, mathematics, early writing, etc.
We use the Ages and Stages Development Tool (ASQ-3) twice a year to assess children’s development levels. With this tool, we develop unique age-appropriate goals to meet your child’s learning needs and copies are provided to families so that we can work together.

Our families rave about our internal communication platform through Brightwheel. In the Brightwheel platform, families receive real-time updates throughout the day. Updates include photos, activities, and open communication between parents and teachers. We also use this platform to check children in/out, pay tuition, and privately communicate with administrators. Brightwheel can be viewed in a web browser or on the app.
Our team takes great pride in serving our children quality, healthy meals each day. We provide an array of fresh fruits and vegetables, a variety of entrees, and fun snacks. We serve breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack which are all included in the weekly tuition. We have four weeks that are rotated throughout the month and are revised twice a year.
