Sassafras

Our wonderful staff members - Ms. Kayla and Ms. Haley are the teachers for our sweet, Sassy Explorers! This group ranges from ages eighteen months through twenty-four months. Some of their favorite activities include nature based art, and playing in the messy sand box!


Throughout the year our teachers are consistently evaluating each child based on age-appropriate benchmarks in order to assess individual growth and development. We believe this enables us to communicate with families and set realistic goals that will set your child up for success throughout their future!
