    Our academically challenging, independent private day school’s eight-acre campus is surrounded by nature and located in the heart of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. We work closely with our families to foster the growth of whole, well-rounded, and happy children and to inspire an appreciation for the natural world. Our highly skilled faculty and staff at our early learning, child development school inspire an appreciation for nature and promote good health and wellbeing. We teach students not what to think, but how to think by using experiences, discussions, and other activities so students discover concepts by themselves through engagement and independent thinking.
