Program

Our Program

We are a nature-based preschool specializing in yoga education. Children are welcomed as valued contributing members of our school community. They have an integral role in determining how the day unfolds, participating and guiding our activities throughout each day. Learning centers are introduced in coordination with their special interests. Compassion and fun is the base from which we radiate.
