Our Kindergarten Program

Comprehensive curriculum preparing children for school success

Our center develops expectations and practices in concert with our state curriculum standards so children make an easy transition into the local school system. At the same time, our curriculum builds off the child’s knowledge base and skills, learning style, and interests. There is a clear emphasis on the development of strong language, math, and science skills. Important “school skills” of listening carefully, following through on a sequence of tasks, and working cooperatively are reinforced.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you all for what you do with my child. I am amazed at how much he has developed and learned. Being a working mom is such a hard thing sometimes but it makes it so much easier when you know your child is being loved and nurtured by truly caring individuals. Thanks for being his mom away from mom."
