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.

"Lily absolutely adores Ms. Coco! She always takes the time to greet her with a big smile and a hug in the morning, which helps her get settled in. I really feel like she cares about her and knows her so well. Lily always is excited to "go show Ms. Coco" her new toys or tell her about her weekend."

Learning at Home

Man in the Moon

You Will Need:

Black construction paper, white chalk

Directions:

Go outside each night for a month. Have your child draw a picture of the moon. Try to let your child be the first to notice the different shape. When she notices it, ask questions about the changes. “What is changing about the moon? Can you find it every night? Is it in the same place every night? Does it look the same at different times of the same night?” Younger children will not be able to understand the concepts involved with reflected light, orbit of the moon and earth etc. They only need to understand that it changes because it moves.

Tip:

Share the peacefulness of night. Talk about your day while you are outside. Notice the sounds and smells of the evening. Go for a walk or put a quilt on the grass to lay on while you search the sky.
