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. .

Painting the House

You Will Need:

Old paint brush, Bucket of water


Ask your child to “paint” the house, fence or sidewalk. The water will change the color and they will see results.


Do this on a hot day and watch the “paint” evaporate. “Where did the paint go? Try it in the shade and see if it disappears as quickly? Why not? What is different about the shady area? Feel the brick, is it hot or cold?
