Our school meets in the newly renovated basement of First United Presbyterian Church in Inman square. This space includes a large open-plan classroom with various work areas for creative play and learning.
There is also a dedicated children’s bathroom and a fully functional kitchen for preparation of snacks. In the warmer months we also use the garden for outdoor play which is equipped with a climbing structure and is securely fenced in.
