We’re pleased to offer programming for infants through pre-kindergarten at our state-of-the-art school which features five outdoor play areas including a bike path, playing field and multiple playgrounds. We offer flexible full- and part-time schedule options in our programs to meet your family’s needs.

Your child’s health and safety is our top priority. Our dedicated teaching staff completes ongoing professional development and training, including maintaining current Infant/Child First Aid and CPR certifications.
We would love to have your child join us. Schedule a tour today to learn more! I look forward to meeting you and your family!

I started my 21+ year career in early education just after high school because I loved taking courses at and working in the preschool located inside my high school. I have a passion for learning about individual interests and motivations of the children in my school. I have identical twin girls and loved having them attend Young School with me from 12 weeks - 5 years old! In my spare time I love reading and going to the beach.
