Children have many opportunities to learn independence, make decisions, develop creativity and practice social and kindergarten readiness skills in an environment of caring, qualified instructors and students.  Curiosity and a love of learning are developed through experiences with nature, art and family focused activities.

This program is located at Rockford High School and utilizes high school students enrolled in child development and life skills classes in this program.  Classes meet 2 ½ hours each M/W/F or T/TH, morning or afternoon.  All of our staff are trained in CPR and first aid.  Visit us on Facebook.

Mission Statement

Our activities are planned with great care and thought. We use current research on child and brain development, as well as the guidelines set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, to plan and sequence each day and the entire school year.
