Our children learn through creating deep and lasting relationships with the world around them. Our program nurtures overall human development, including cognitive and physical skills and social and emotional intelligence. We know that attention to process leads to exceptional outcomes.We offer a vibrant program for children ages 3-6 across three campuses: on our Main Campus, 17 miles from downtown Durham or Chapel Hill, by UNC Chapel Hill's campus, and by Duke University's Central Campus. Each campus is staffed by highly trained and experienced educators who bring purposeful attention to what helps children best grow and develop. We believe that students, teachers, and families can together empower children to realize their best self, animated by the idea that each child has a sacred individuality to be honored.
