Our Philosophy

At Higher Elevations Learning Place we believe that learning and growth development come from the hard work of pushing our limits and challenging ourselves. We create a play-based curriculum that creates moments that challenge our children to stretch their abilities and grow and learn in the skill arenas of social, physical, cognitive, and emotional regulation.
