We began serving the Bentonville community at our current location in January 2017. Since that time, our mission has been to create a safe and positive environment where children can learn and thrive. We do this by having a low staff to child ratio and an atmosphere where children feel supported and nurtured. We value each child and our approach is one that emphasizes kindness, respect, and team work. We aim to provide children with a variety of activities that encourage physical fitness, creative expression, and discovery.
