A comprehensive, diverse and inclusive early childhood center for children between the ages of 2 and 5 years and their families that are part of the Longwood University, Farmville and Prince Edward County communities.

We are committed to providing a nurturing and stimulating environment where young children are honored as curious, creative, and capable individuals. We embrace each and every child’s talents, strengths and needs as they build an understanding of their world through an emergent, child-guided curriculum.

Our approach emphasizes whole-child development across all domains, including:

  • Literacy and Language
  • Cognition
  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development and Health
  • Fine Arts

Classroom Experience

Our teaching staff is committed to helping each child discover and fulfill his or her potential, as well as ensuring that learning is meaningful and fun. Daily activities are thoughtfully designed by our teachers to engage children in deep thinking, as well as promote the acquisition of lifelong learning skills. Classroom investigations are based on the interests and curiosities of the children, rather than predetermined or otherwise limited by the adult.

Our teachers are highly qualified professionals with a deep understanding of child development who are passionate about early childhood. Our lead teachers possess a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in education and hold teaching licenses with endorsements that include preschool and/or prekindergarten years.
