Assistant Director: Tiffany Nilsson

North Campus boasts large classrooms and a spacious outdoors for children to explore and make their own. We share the terrain with our nine chickens and 1,500 square foot garden. Our primary kitchen, located in the heart of our school, is where our chefs prepare the meals and snacks for this school and our neighboring New Haven and South Campus locations.

Parent: “This is what Martha Stewart’s childcare center would look like if she had one.”
Us: “Aww, shucks”

The school is open Monday – Friday, 7 a.m.-6 p.m. (excluding holidays)
