The Butterfly classroom welcomes children from age 30 months to 5 years. Our hands-on activities include art, music and movement, writing, weekly cooking, discovery, blocks, library, dramatic play and much more.

Our schedule allows for outdoor time, both large and small group activities as well as independent learning.  This gives your child the opportunity to learn how to work together, take turns, and share.  All these activities together help your child prepare for kindergarten. 

We value our family partnerships both in and out to the classroom.  If you have the opportunity to join us throughout the day please do so, you’re always welcome.
