Prioritizing Outdoor Play
We understand how important it is for children to move and enjoy time outdoors, which is why we include 120 minutes of outdoor play as part of our daily routine. We have far more to offer our students than just a playground, though. All of our outdoor amenities are constantly monitored, and each meets our strict safety standards. Our outdoor amenities include:
- Water park and splash pad: There is nothing better than splashing around in a water park to stay cool on a hot summer day.
- Tennis court: Your child will love playing a friendly round of tennis on our court, a sport that will further develop their hand-eye coordination.
- Basketball court: Our students get great exercise and improve their team-building skills and hand-eye coordination, all while playing an exciting game of basketball.
- Creative Movement studio: Children get the opportunity to stretch both their body and their brains as they enjoy fun, teacher-led activities in our Creative Movement studio.
Security is Our Top Priority
Keeping your children safe and secure when they’re on our campus is always our number one priority. That’s why we have invested in state-of-the-art security technology to monitor the activities on campus and who is coming and going. We have Eagle Eye lobby monitors to watch what’s happening around our facility closely. We also have cameras throughout the campus that record both sound and video. We have nonrecording cameras in the bathroom as well to ensure the safety and security of our students.
Our interior doors remain locked at all times and require a fingerprint scan to open. We also have an administrative assistant or another member of our staff monitoring activities at the front door. Guests are required to provide ID and must wear a visitor name badge the entire time they’re on our campus.
