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

Rice Play

You Will Need:

1 or more pounds uncooked rice large plastic bowl or container wooden spoons, measuring spoons, plastic cups.


Put rice in the container with cups and spoons. Place the container on the kitchen floor for your child to practice spooning and pouring and scooping. “How many scoops does it take to fill up the cup? What does the rice feel like? How is it different from the rice we eat?”


Rice will spill on the floor. It is easier to clean up if you place the container on a tray, shower curtain or table cloth. Keep a broom handy to sweep the floor often because rice is slippery. Explain to your child how important it is to keep the rice in this spot and not carry it anywhere else. This is a fun way for your child to be with you while you are working in the kitchen. Your child can pretend to cook dinner.
