This is where it all begins... Pierce is a child's introduction to formal education, providing a positive experience, and setting the stage for a lifelong love of learning. Pierce is a place that smiles...a happy, secure and active place.

Our curriculum is developmentally appropriate and supports children's growth- socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. Our students have countless experiences that help them to grow into compassionate and caring individuals.

"Education is not the filling of a pail,
but the lighting of a fire."

~ William Butler Yeats
