Our Little Dragons program was developed specifically for children ages 3-5.

We believe in praise, encouragement and positive reinforcement.

We emphasize the positive attributes of our students, and help them gain self-esteem and achieve higher goals. We believe in following a high standard of values to bring out the good in our students and increase the quality of life. Regular attendance will result in stress reduction and improved health.
