2-3 Year Old Program
Our Early-Learning program is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education. We implemented the Creative Curriculum Teaching Strategies Gold, with an emphasis on STEM learning and individualized student portfolios. This will improve every child's advancements in school and life as the program is designed to enhance the overall educational experience of each student by focusing on the individual uniqueness of each child.
