Sycamore Run is more than a childcare center. They offer a program that is intentionally created to honor childhood! They believe that children deserve to grow up in a loving, supportive community.

They believe that nature is among the child’s best teachers, and that children can be its best stewards. They do not have a sterile, industrial setting. They want children to enjoy exploring their environment – students at Sycamore Run get their hands (and clothes and faces) dirty every day. Daily routines are followed, including academic projects and programming, but generally the approach is more organic and less structured.

The approach to teaching is guided by the philosophies of Maria Montessori, John Dewey and Reggio Emilia. The program emphasizes natural materials, hands on learning and the development of student-led themes for exploration.
Child care is offered to children ages 4 months – 5 years.
