Academic Program

Welcome to Lily's Garden! At the heart of our program is a warm, nurturing, and stimulating environment where we provide a solid foundation for a strong, academic future while allowing your child to freely express his or her unique creativity. We believe in instilling good habits from an early age to foster an effective and healthy work ethic. As a result, many of our graduates go on to comfortably skip the first grade. Our curriculum spans over a broad range of topics including the arts, sciences, and geography with particular emphasis on reinforcing language and math skills.
