Learn & Grow

5-Year Accelerated Early Learning Program

Learn and Grow at The Village is a cutting-edge, five-year accelerated early education program aimed at empowering children to excel beyond traditional expectations. We believe in the immense capabilities of young minds and their potential to achieve critical foundation skills at an accelerated pace.

Our mission is to cultivate a love for learning, foster critical thinking, and instill advanced academic skills from an early age, providing children with a significant head start in their educational journey, and ensuring they leave our program at least one grade level ahead of their peers.

Who We Are


The Village Learn & Grow program was developed by Dana, a seasoned and triple-certified educator with a double-masters in education. Dana began to develop this program during COVID when learning pods were more needed than ever. As the need grew, the program grew with the help of other certified educators who also believed that through research-based approaches and small-group instruction, children could achieve highly.


The Village believes that children are capable of a lot and if given the opportunity and right approach, they can attain critical foundation skills at an accelerated rate and ultimately gain a head-start at a very early age.


The goal is to ensure we are capturing and shaping curious minds to grow a love for learning, critical thinking skills, and academic skills at a young age through a hands-on, mulitsensory, rigorous, and differentiated teaching approach that meets each child's level and learning styles and ultimately ensures a head start in their learning journey. Children in this program leave with a minimum of one-grade level ahead of children in their age-range.

Mini & Me University

Infancy-Age 2

The goal of Mini & Me University is for children to engage in social-emotional learning while developing developmental skills and a foundation for academic Pre-K learning. Children reach their milestones while gaining comfort in engaging Montessori-style learning and play space. Children and parents are supported and educated in discovering hands-on engaging research-based learning methods led by enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and creative educators.

Learn & Grow 2's

Age 2-3

Children learn how to be independent of their caretakers and be led by a seasoned and loving educator who meets them at their level and ensures they gain Pre-K 3 academic skills. Children graduate having learned letters, numbers, shapes and other academic and non-academic Pre-K 3 foundational skills.


Children who graduate from our program leave with the confidence of having strong academic, social, and emotional skills. Their ability to problem solve and verbalize their critical thinking process is what sets them apart from children at their level. The Village collaborates with their families to ensure every child is supported socially, emotionally, and academically so that they are equipped with the skills necessary for any learning journey that is to come.
