WELCOME to our school’s website! Here you'll learn about the caring, experienced, and credentialed staff we've assembled to provide the best early childhood care, development, and education in the area. At our school, your child’s development will be guided by our Fun Learning Experience (F.L.EX.®) curriculum which incorporates language, literacy, social and physical skills, social studies, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math). You’ll also learn something about us: We have two adult children and are committed to excellence in early childhood education. We lived in Pittsford, and have lived Fairport, NJ, PA and VA. Nan majored in Child Development & Family Relations, is an interpreter for the deaf, and a Certified American Montessori Society Infant/Toddler Teacher. Gary grew up in West Irondequoit, is a retired architect and construction industry executive and teaches Engineering Technology courses at MCC. We look forward to welcoming you to our school!
