Preschool & Child Care Center Serving Charlottesville, Virginia

A Passionate Leader Welcomes Every Family

Owner-Director Tassia is on site, on hand, and involved, with an open door and a listening ear. She leads a team of dedicated educators to create a loving, nurturing environment where every child feels welcome, included, and confident to express themselves.

A Lifelong Love Of Learning With A Blended Curriculum

Combining world-renowned learning philosophies, including Reggio Emilia and Montessori with nature- and play-based learning, the Creative Curriculum®, and STEAM, your child’s teachers create an engaging environment that develops and inspires their natural curiosity.

Lots Of Active Fun Like Dance Parties, & So Much More

Your child moves, grooves, and stretches every day. With music for dance parties, large magnetic blocks for building, a nugget couch for obstacle courses and forts, the gross motor room fosters physical confidence, coordination, and fun.

Social-Emotional Learning Is The Path To Happiness

Social-Emotional Learning Is The Path To Happiness

A focus on social-emotional learning equips your child to identify and regulate their feelings, build positive relationships, and develop self-esteem. From this firm foundation, they can blossom physically, cognitively, creatively, and intellectually to prepare for school and beyond.

Outdoor Discoveries For Health, Happiness, & Wonder

Your child gets outside every day! They run and climb in age-appropriate playgrounds, dig in the mud kitchen, collect materials for art projects on woodland walks, and learn how nature works as they tend to the composting worm bin and herb garden.

Creative Sensory Play & Science In The Atelier

Exciting discoveries await a space dedicated to exploration and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). A sensory table and loose parts play encourages cognitive connections, space for art encourages messy expression, and a library welcomes little readers.

Healthy, Organic Food At No Extra Cost To You

Your child stays energized with a nutritious and delicious breakfast, lunch, and snack included every day. Their meals focus on organic ingredients, dairy-free options and never contain preservatives or high fructose syrup.

Regular Communication Keeps You Involved Daily

Be part of your child’s day with at least 2 pictures of their fun activities via the Procare Connect® app. Plus, you’re welcome to stop by their classroom to see what’s happening and stay updated on their progress with regular parent-teacher conferences.
