In the heart of downtown Batavia, our program is designed specifically for our elementary students while remaining true to our Mill Creek ECP philosophy; a Reggio inspired, nature and relationship-based program.
With a creative and inspiring art studio, the Fox River Trail outside our back door, and the Batavia community surrounding us there will always be inspiration, provocations and unique opportunities for you child to be actively engaged in their learning.
