shared nanny a.k.a. "mamas/papas morning out":


ARROW is a good first step for your child as they transition from your home out into the world. our caregiver to child ratio is 1 to 4, so each child receives plenty of love and attention. our caregivers are all cpr-certified and caring, conscientious & creative. the children participate in a mix of indoor and outdoor playtime, exploration through playing with simple toys, and through art & music activities. bring along your own snack and lunch. cloth or disposable diapering is fine, as is potty training. nap rooms are available for those who need to rest. for more information on what makes Arrow unique, take a peek here.

seedling class:


this class is intended as a stepping stone from our Shared Nanny to other more formal preschool offerings that can be found elsewhere in the Athens community, and is designed to begin to prepare the little ones for a more structured day, while still retaining the elements of creative play and imaginative, experiential learning. Exploration themes based on the seasons and creative projects (art, music, movement, outdoor play) will provide the framework for the children's learning.
This class is currently led by Amber Carpenter & Magali Marlowe.
