Our program is designed to meet the unique needs of each child we serve in a safe and nurturing environment.

​​There is an atmosphere of acceptance in which the individual needs of each child are considered and in which the child can flourish and grow under the guidance of qualified teachers. As caregivers, we strive to create a learning environment that is safe and engaging that encourages exploration and discovery.

Karla had the dream of her own school from a very young age. After reconnecting with a high school classmate, Kevin Campbell, Pastor of Crossroads Baptist Church, Karla and Steve were able to bring her dream to life in a serendipitous way as she learned Pastor Kevin had a magnificent building available. The Carta’s have four grown children, a son in Middle school and 2 grandchildren.
