Detention and leading a large violent gang. At the age of 17, he was
introduced to Conscious Discipline®.

Our curriculum focuses on a child’s four primary developmental
domains: cognitive, language, social-emotional, and physical. We emphasize
first-hand experiences in play, oral language, listening, books, and phonemic
awareness. Our facility is adjacent to the grounds of the nation’s
largest county fair. This provides the unique opportunity to have amazing
hands-on educational experiences — “from Apples to Zoo”
— that cannot be taught in a classroom.
