Our Space


We dreamed of a large, open and bright layout for a building, without the institutional feel of a typical school, that was surrounded by grass, trees and preferably a hill. Finding a building to support our dream and philosophy was not an easy task. We searched for three years before it all came together. A number of those who were helping us did not understand that we could not start out in a strip mall or even a building placed in a retail with the vision we had for our preschool.

Finally, the event center owned by a neighborhood church was available.  We took one look and decided that with some work, the building was perfect.  The design of the building was unique. The classrooms would have an abundance of natural light because the entire east and west walls were windows. The location was great: in a residential neighborhood, next to churches and a school, and yet near the highway for convenience. Best of all, the building was situated in the center of a large grassy hill; it was perfect for being surrounded by playgrounds and an embankment slide! Exactly what we had been looking for.  

After a redesign from our architect, and lots of work from our graphic designer, we are beginning to see our dream come to life! Subscribe below to be added to our mailing list to follow construction, get updates on open house information in May, and see the building that will bring our dreams to life!
