This summer we have had a lot of exciting things happening on the Mustang Campus. We finally had our front portico replaced. The top floor received all new flooring. And we have a new learning cottage on its way. We are so excited for you all to see all of the new updates :)

Have a terrific last few weeks of summer and please reach out to us if there is anything that we can do to ensure your child has a smooth start to the school year. Thank you for your support!
