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.

"Miss Katelyn, you are just such a guiding star. Grace comes home saying things we know came right out of your mouth (Sharing is caring!), and your love for the kids and your work is apparent every day. Thank you! Miss Aimee, you've been such a constant hand to hold for Grace since toddlers and she is drawn to your quiet strength. She will often tell us that "Miss Aimee gave me a good hug today," and we couldn't be more appreciative. Thank you!!"

Learning at Home

Setting the Table

You Will Need:

Silverware and napkins


Ask your child to set the table. The first few times do the task together. Ask your child how many people will be at the table and how many of each item he needs.


Helping at mealtimes is a wonderful way to spend time together when parents have chores to accomplish. Don't worry too much about correctness of placement - focus more on the concept that each person gets one plate, one cup, etc.
