Private Kindergarten-2nd grade


Is your child Kindergarten age, but not quite ready?  Often times, an extra gift of time is of great benefit to boost a child's self esteem and provides a solid foundation for future school years.

Is your child an advanced learner? Are you afraid they won't receive enough academic challenge in traditional Kindergarten?

Do you desire a hands-on, play-based approach for your child's Early Elementary years, that may not be available in other programs?

Do you desire a STEAM-based program with a focus on gardening, animal science and outdoor learning? 

Do you feel First and Second grade is too soon to give up play-based learning and plentiful time spent outdoors?


If the answer to any of these questions is YES, than the Early Elementary (K-2)  program at The Lilypad is a great option for your child!


For the last several years, we have been proud to offer a refreshing alternative to traditional Kindergarten.  We have seen children flourish through the extensive outdoor learning experiences that we offer and opportunities for outdoor play.  Play is an essential part of Early Childhood and with the focus on standardized testing, this critical part of the day is deleted from traditional schooling.  

We have seen dramatic success with our students!  So much so, that many of our families have asked us to incorporate 1st grade as well! This has been our initial year of implementing 1st grade curriculum and it has gone exceptionally well! 


We are so proud to offer such an amazingly different approach to Elementary education that we have intentions to expand our program to include 2nd grade as well in the 2023/2024 school year!  

We offer small class sizes and strategic skill based learning centers that cater to the needs of each individual student.  Our mixed grouping strategies will ensure that your child's learning plan will be perfectly designed to meet them exactly where they're at based on their learning development.
