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. .

Work together to make a snowman. “Where do you think all this snow came from? What does our snowman need? What can we use to be his eyes? Does he need a hat? Is it a boy or a girl? Do we need a different hat for a boy? Do we have enough snow to make a snowman as tall as you. . .as tall as me? Let’s see! Do we want to name him?”
