What’s better than playing in the dirt?!
We love outdoor exploration!!

Our Approach

We believe in taking care of the environment and enriching young lives. We compost, reduce, reuse, recycle, and learn about the environment we live in. We like to spend a good deal of our time outside and we like to get dirty!

Our Story

The owner is a mother of three children who had a tough time finding quality childcare for her own children, She is also an attorney. “I couldn’t leave my kids to go to work because either the childcare provider did not show up, or put my children in a dangerous situation.” She decided to open her own childcare and share her love of the outdoors and make sure the kids were well taken care of in an enriching environment.
