Our main building opened in July 2012. In order to better serve the families in the Cascade community, we opened our additional Young 5’s and School Age building in 2014 to meet growing demand. We pride ourselves on partnering with families as their children start with us as infants and toddlers, complete our K-Prep Preschool programs, and eventually become our school age Explorers.
