Our mission is to
give children a sense
of timelessness as they
explore, experiment
and play.


Welcome to the Stretch admissions process and thank you for your interest in our program. We are excited for you to learn more about our community and our approach to these magical years in your child’s life.

Here at Stretch we take a unique and intentional approach to learning with your child and nurturing their love of exploration and discovery. We feel a true responsibility to creating a safe, loving, and creative space that honors the wonder and magic that illuminates these early years. Our mission is to give children a sense of timelessness as they experiment, explore and play, being careful not to rush them as their learning unfolds.

We strive to cultivate their love of learning and hold children as competent and capable investigators in their own knowledge. We are unique in our integration of nature into the program. Our educators honor and cultivate a deep connection to the natural world and believe it is every child’s right to connect with nature.

Ultimately, it is a goal to have children graduate from Stretch with a toolbox of skills and values where they are caring, confident, and curious explorers in the world that surrounds them. We welcome you to explore our website, read documentation, and learn more about our work with young children.
