All About It Takes A Village


At It Takes A Village, our mission is to uncover the gifts and talents of students so that they can reach their fullest potential. We strive to foster a love of learning in each student that comes through our Educational Community. We recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles and personalities. Our curriculum skillfully weaves artistic and practical disciplines into everyday academics. Students learn to follow their curiosity, to think creatively, and to work both independently and cooperatively with others.

At It Takes A Village we celebrate diversity and strive to instill integrity, compassion, and confidence in each child. We provide students with an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, invites the sharing of ideas, and incorporates the family, culture, and beliefs of each student.



The low staff to student ratio allows each child’s natural curiosity to direct his or her learning and to shape our curriculum. Our highly qualified teachers (Masters and Bachelor Degrees) and staff are committed to working within each child’s comfort zone to ensure optimal social, emotional and educational results. All staff have received satisfactory background checks, drug screenings, and are certified in Pediatric CPR and First Aid.

You can rest assured that your child will be cared for with the utmost kindness, love, and respect. We believe each child is a precious gift and we treat them as though they were our own.
