We believe starting education at an early age can help foster a child’s development. We offer an engaging curriculum via Frog Street for children in the following age groups:

We’ve developed a classroom rotation program to stimulate young minds. With this program, your child rotates to various enrichment classes taught by course-specific teachers. Your child will attend every class at least once a week, and they will learn a full curriculum every day in our homeroom classroom. Here’s a look at how the rotating schedule works within various age groups:
- 12 to 24 months: Art, music, Spanish, and sign language travel to the children.
- 2 to 3 years old: Art, music, Spanish, and sign language come to the children, while children travel to both the gym and the library.
- 3 years and older: Spanish and sign language are taught in the homeroom classroom, while children travel for gym, foreign language library, art studio, culinary arts, bowling, Crème City, STEAM lab, Krem TV, and coding and robotics.
- School-aged children: Spanish and sign language are taught in the homeroom classroom. Foosball, Xbox, iPads, theater, and modern dance travel to the children, while they travel for gym, foreign language library, art studio, culinary arts, bowling, Crème City, STEAM lab, Krem TV, and coding and robotics.
Areas of Enrichment
We offer plenty of opportunities for your child to shine beyond the core curriculum. Thanks to our wide variety of enrichment areas, your child can explore their unique interests and passions. We offer Spanish, Mandarin, and Sign Language as foreign language options.
