Branches Atelier is committed to creating high-quality, creative, dynamic, educational programs for children, families and educators. We are a social constructivist program, inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education.

Based on our fundamental belief that children learn best when their work is meaningful and in a social context, we integrate all areas of curriculum though short-term explorations and long-term project . Children are viewed as protagonists in their learning and are encouraged to work in collaboration with their peers to co-construct new theories and ideas.

Parent Tours


Prospective families are invited to tour our facility where Patricia Hunter McGrath, our Director, will highlight our philosophy and show samples of the work of the children. Because we are dedicated to focusing our full attention to the children, we do not offer tours during school hours. These tours are for adults only.

Once you have toured the school, you will have the opportunity to fill out an application. We are a very unique program and recognize the importance of a great fit of your family and the school.

In the spring of the year that your child would qualify to attend, you will hear from us. If you have any changes to your contact information, please email

Tours are usually scheduled once a month. 

Application forms are only available to those that have attended a tour. We do not email or mail out applications.

You will have opportunities to ask questions, please feel free to come prepared with a list.

If you cannot attend a tour, please kindly give us at least 24 hour notice. Without it, we will have to put you on a waiting list for year end tours.


Please do not call the school to reserve a spot on a tour.
