We are located at 1621 N. 3rd St #1000
in beautiful Coeur d'Alene Idaho.
Our classroom is filled with learning fun both indoors and out. The children are encouraged daily to identify feelings and practice acceptance of others' emotions. We are outside multiple times a day, learning through a variety of activities but also playing and burning energy. We're always thinking outside the box, fostering self-guided learning, and contributing to the class by cleaning up after ourselves. Math, science, art, and language are all taught through collaborative group learning styles.
Our Pre-K class begins their academic experience through sensory play, science, music, books, dance, letters, colors and nature. They are encouraged to learn through exploration and discovery, all while receiving the encouragement and consistency they need. Students continue to practice using problem solving skills in both an academic and social nature.
Our class focuses on learning through play, science, sensory, song and art. Children learn best when they are having fun and able to express themselves by being creative.
Students' interests are the inspiration of learning. Empathy, problem solving skills, imaginative play and sensory experiences are encouraged in the classroom and on the playground daily.
Learn by play is our focus in this program. Children learn social skills, develop trust and loving relationships with caretakers and friends outside their home. They will be introduced to learning in make believe play, story time, song and dance. We help children develop problem solving skills, labeling emotions, and begin to learn colors, shapes and letters through play. We use sensory play daily and utilize the outdoors when at all possible.

“I am a Firefly; I am bright and I shine.
Throughout my years in school, many friends I will find.
Everyone is special and different in their own way.
That’s why I want to make a pledge on this very day.
Today I want to share what I know to be true;
that each and every child has intelligence and value.
Every day is different; some feel great and some feel bad.
This is real, it is normal, and I will not make anyone feel sad.
If I ever do bring sadness with my actions or my voice,
please forgive me, and I will try my best next time
to make a better choice.
Sometimes we’re happy, sometimes we’re not
and that is perfectly okay.
Now that I’m aware, I will try to brighten someone’s day.”
