Branches Community School is a vibrant early learning community for children ages 3 months – 5 years. Inspired by the Reggio-Emilia approach to living and learning, our classrooms foster creativity, exploration, and relationships.


Early childhood education is in crisis. Soaring tuition, staff turnover, and pressure from results-driven education leave many families without high-quality options. At Branches Community School, we strive to break down these barriers and focus on the wonder of childhood that EVERY child deserves. As a progressive early childhood program, we invite participation and celebrate diversity in honoring the rights of children. We hope you will join us in renewing the culture of childhood.
