“The time the teachers and staff at EDS take to learn each individual child’s needs is amazing. They go above and beyond to make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable – this is truly a magical place filled with kind, caring, loving and well educated staff.”


What Makes Us Special

At EDS, we are an intentional play-based school and focus on experiential learning. We host a variety of special visitors and take numerous field trips: everything from cooking classes to hosting a rock club, sports spirit weeks to theater, music performances to naturalist classes. You’ll also find a close-knit community, with fun social events for the whole family. And we have a comprehensive allergy policy and an “accidents happen” potty training policy. Learn more.

Our Classes

We offer classes 2, 3, or 5 days a week for children age 32 months – 6 years. Students fill their days with science, reading, arts & crafts, field trips, exploration and play. Learn more.
