about us

The classrooms are arranged so that all the children have easy access to developmentally appropriate activities and materials.



Lionheart is based on the belief that parents are the experts on their children and it is our role to supplement their care while their parents are away. A strong collaboration must exist between the administration, teachers, and family to provide the very best in early learning. We know children need love, nurturing, safety, and a stimulating environment to grow into happy young people.


Lionheart strives to provide an environment that promotes collaboration between family and school to give your child the highest quality early childhood experience to meet your child’s developmental needs.


Our Curriculum Approach


Learning Beyond Lesson Plans and Daily Activities are carefully crafted to meet the unique development needs of each child, with every activity linked to early childhood standards for each age group.

Build a Strong Early Learning Foundation


World of Wonders builds a strong foundation for early literacy and provides developmentally appropriate instruction for early learners, ages three to five, including cross-curricular activities, a focus on social-emotional development, and preparation for kindergarten and beyond.

Our Programs

Beginning with infants, we work tirelessly to build a foundation of learning that will help your child succeed in elementary school. Our programs are defined by research-based curriculum and individualized learning experiences.


Through nurturing dedication, our teachers guide your child toward reaching milestones and achieving success. We know our most important job is cultivating relationships-between teachers and children, teachers and families, and the school and our community.

At Lionheart, we are on a journey to connect with one another-from the littlest infant to the most confident preschooler-from the newest, first time parent to the most experienced educators with decades of experience.


We invite you to join our family and come on a journey of discovery!
