Wahlstrom Early Childhood Academy is more than a school, it is an opportunity to experience the "Joy of learning". Wahlstrom was truly architecturally designed for the theme of Early Childhood Education. As you enter the Academy, the bold colors of the interior seem to make the building come alive. The large windows in each classroom add natural light and a park like setting that enhances the ambiance of the school and support of nature.

The auditorium area is the showcase of the school. The cyclindrical built amphitheater allows the children to have a magnificent staging area to display their musical and theatrical abilities.
