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.

"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!"

Houseplants

You Will Need:

A hardy houseplant (ivy, aloe vera, etc.), a small watering can

Directions:

Help your child choose plants to care for and purchase them at a garden center. When you are watering your houseplants, encourage your child can care for her plants, too. 

Talk about how much water the plants need. Have your child measure that amount of water into the watering can. Let your child decide where the plants will get the best amount of sun and fertilize the plant. Say things like, “What do you think the plant food will do to the plant?”; “What does food do to you?”; “What would happen to your plant if you didn’t feed or water it?”; “Do you think your plant looks any greener?” 

Don’t forget to have your child dust the leaves when needed and say things like “Can your plant get air with dust on it?” and “What happens to you if you can’t breathe?”

Tip:

Make sure to use nonpoisonous plants. Some common plants - poinsettias and philodendrons - are mildly poisonous. Other plants - shamrock and dieffenbachia - are highly poisonous.
