  • Our World

    Kindergarten Prep takes Care of the Environment

    Kindergarten Prep children are becoming aware of the world and their ability to make an impact on it. Our students experience weeding our gardens, planting seeds, and caring for the plants as they grow.
    These experiences develop a child's sense of citizenship, enhance their self concept and self- esteem, and prepare them to live a meaningful, fulfilling life.
