Our Kindergarten Program

Comprehensive curriculum preparing children for school success

Our center develops expectations and practices in concert with our state curriculum standards so children make an easy transition into the local school system. At the same time, our curriculum builds off the child’s knowledge base and skills, learning style, and interests. There is a clear emphasis on the development of strong language, math, and science skills. Important “school skills” of listening carefully, following through on a sequence of tasks, and working cooperatively are reinforced.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"We could not be happier with the quality care that these teachers provide to our daughter. She is so happy when we drop her off and pick her up - we know she loves spending time with them. It makes being a working parent a lot easier to know that such she is in such great, caring hands!"
