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. .

Packing Up for a Picnic- Word Game

You Will Need:

Imagination

Directions:

Start the activity with your child by saying, “I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing _________.”  Start with a word beginning with “A.” Then, have your child say the same thing, but choose something that starts with “B,” and so on through the alphabet.

Tip:

This is a great activity to do while driving in the car. Younger children may need help – if so, they can tell you what letter comes next and you can supply the item.
