We started with the idea that kids need a big world to explore – one that they can feel physically and emotionally safe in – where their curiosity is nurtured and their imagination is encouraged. Next, we borrowed ideas from some of our most admired philosophies; Home Schooling, Maria Montessori, and Sir Ken Robinson. We also review our lessons alongside the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards. In our preschool classrooms, we introduce enrichment learning activities. These are are both teacher-initiated and student-led, because we believe that students learn best when something sparks their interests.

Move Well

We believe it is important for kids to move freely and have lots of time to explore their interests while learning new skills. At the Well, we focus on creating spaces where children learn through play both individually and as a group. We love to see their energy as they work together to accomplish tasks.

Eat Well

We have a passion for wholesome food and good nutrition. We offer two healthy snacks each day and strive to provide organic and locally-sourced items whenever possible. The children are exposed to a variety of fruit, vegetables and other whole foods in fun, nutritious recipes developed by our Nutritionist.

Think Well

Just like you, we are focused on early education. We want to make sure children are ready for all of the academic opportunities in their future. The Well’s methods are just a little different. Here, kids spend less time seated at desks or tables and more time running and playing, because we believe movement, fun and learning go hand-in-hand. Your kids will be having so much fun, they won’t realize they’re preparing for success in school.

Play Well

Children are like little sponges, they soak up everything around them. Thus, we find it important to provide a huge variety of experiences. This is why we have an array of areas within the school designed specifically for developing different skills through play and movement. We are lucky to have an Imagination Playground (blue blocks!), and everyone knows that our indoor play structure is what made us famous!
