Pardon the Dust!

12/9/13 Update: The problems appear to now be fully resolved. Thank you for your patience.

Our hosting provider, Dreamhost, performed emergency maintenance several days ago on our web server. This maintenance involved migration to a new server. Since that time, various things have not been working properly, most notably:

  • E-mails from the site do not work (user registration / contact us form).
  • Images uploaded with stories are not displaying.

We would like to get these problems fixed as soon as possible, but that depends on Dreamhost responding to our ticket requests in an adequate manner. Keep your fingers crossed.


What is a House for Children?

It is a place for voices to be heard, laughter to be shared, and wonder to be experienced. Come see a children's house for yourself. Saturday, February 6th from 10:00 until 12:00 we will be hosting our Spring Open House. We would love to meet your family to discuss our vision for early childhood education and show you what we mean by "an environment for discovery and learning." Enrollment for summer programs and the 2016-2017 school year will be available. Our tables and chairs may be small, but our hearts are big!
