At The Children’s Courtyard, your child is given plenty of room to excel. With state-of-the-art equipment and a refined atmosphere, our campus-like, two-building facilities offer plenty of room for your child to think big and become the best possible version of him or herself. Here, your child will learn alongside other children, through interesting events, with the right materials, in classrooms and labs designed to develop and foster specific interests. The result? A child who thinks logically, solves problems, thrives socially, and displays an exceptional strength of character. We prepare students for the next – and every – stage of a productive academic life. The foundation of a lifetime of success is formed here.

At The Children’s Courtyard, we’re inspired by the HighScope educational philosophy. Children’s interests and choices are the foundation of this approach. Teachers challenge and expand children’s thinking with diverse materials and nurturing interactions. In all our programs, children engage in active learning—direct, hands-on experiences with people, materials, and ideas. With the HighScope philosophy, children are working toward four specific goals:
1. To learn through active involvement with people, materials, events, and ideas.
2. To become responsible and confident—ready for school and ready for life.
3. To learn to plan many of their own activities, carry them out, and talk with others about what they have done and what they have learned.
4. To gain knowledge and skills in important academic, social, and physical areas.
In order to meet these goals, children participate in a robust Plan-Do-Review process that promotes problem-solving and critical thinking skills. We provide a strong focus on early literacy, social understanding, physical coordination, creativity, and positive character traits.
The Children’s Courtyard also knows education is not a one-size-fits-all experience. That’s why we created the School Readiness Pathway, to provide parents with educational options and choices. The Pathway is designed to empower you to find the best path for your child.
