Our Preschool Program

Engaging children intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially

Our preschool classrooms focus on children’s newly emerging skills and advanced use of language, math, and scientific thought. Multi-disciplinary learning centers encourage individual skills and emerging interests in academics, creative expression, and outdoor learning.

Our curriculum stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and exploratory nature to prepare children for lifelong learning. Children move to elementary school socially prepared, excited to learn, and well versed in the language, math, and science skills they’ll need to succeed. .

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Ms. Phoi, thank you for being such a great and loving teacher to Zoe and all the children in Pandas. We know that Zoe loves your wonderful energy (as do we), and your big, loving hugs! We're so grateful for the positive difference you've made in Zoe's school year - she loves coming to school, and your warm and welcoming hugs are something she looks forward to every day. Thank you for all that you've taught her, and all that you do!"

Learning at Home

Recycled Materials Family Band

You Will Need:

Music, wood, plastic or metal surfaces to use as drums, wooden and metal spoons to use as drum sticks, paper towel rolls, wax paper, cups, plastic wrap, materials (such as uncooked rice or beans) to put in the maracas.

Directions:

Look at pictures of musical instruments, such as drums, kazoos and maracas, and then make and play them.

  • Make drums from empty coffee cans with plastic lids, round oatmeal containers, or pots and pans
  • Make kazoos by placing waxed paper over one end of a paper towel roll, adhere the waxed paper with tape, and then poke two or three holes in the wax paper.
  • Make maracas by putting pebbles, or uncooked rice or beans in plastic cups, then sealing the top with paper and tape. Supervise the use of dried rice and beans closely.
  • Play music and dance with your child, playing the different instruments as you dance.

Tip:

Play games such as follow the leader -- take turns imitating what your child does and having him imitate what you do. Try creating a family marching band.

What Your Child Can Learn:

  • Following directions
  • Listening skills
  • Discrimination between different sounds (a kazoo sounds different from a maraca)
  • Creative movement
