The development of cognitive, social and motor skills is a key ingredient to any child’s formative years. This is even more important for the child of a young military family dealing with the unique stressors of frequent moves and deployments. We focus on a safe environment that encourages focused childhood education, socialization and healthy living choices, leading to a well-rounded military student who achieves their highest potential in the education system.
