Welcome

Welcome to The Children’s Garden. We provide children with a rich curriculum and nurturing atmosphere that celebrates uniqueness, promotes self-esteem, and encourages cooperation based on mutual respect. We also offer parent education and encourage parents to actively participate in the school as we have a commitment to helping all members of our community grow in their ability to communicate and respect one another.

The staff strives to provide a broad and diverse base of families and seeks families who will both add to and benefit from our unique style of education. The Children’s Garden does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, nationality or family structure in any facet of its educational policies or programs.
