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. .

Learning at Home

Home Grown Jungle

You Will Need:

Shallow pan or plate, fresh carrots, beets or parsnips, mung seeds, small plastic animals, small stones

Directions:

Cut the tops off carrots, beets or parsnips leaving about 1-2 inches at top. Eat the bottom and place the tops on the plate with a little water. Sprinkle mung seeds in the water. Place in a sunny location. Mung seeds should sprout and the carrots and beets will grow into “trees”. Arrange stones and plastic animals in the “jungle”.

Tip:

Add water frequently. If the water gets cloudy, pour it out, rinse the pan and add new water. Mung sprouts are crunchy and good to eat. Talk about what kind of animals live in a real jungle. Have they made a jungle or a forest?
