Programming for ages 12 months and up!

Little ones are always learning and it is our job to steer them in the right direction. We take this responsibility very seriously and we want to help open the door to the world of education. The Smart Start and Ready Set Learn classes are curriculum based programs, incorporating fun into learning.

Children must be fully potty trained without pull-ups for the Smart Start & Ready Set Learn programs. There are no exceptions to this requirement.
