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.

"I can't stress enough how great the entire center has been, but Keera absolutely adores Mrs. Angie. The other day she was talking to me about her and I even caught her playing school and she was Mrs. Angie. Thank you so much for making my child feel safe, special and happy! It makes me so happy."

Alphabet Menu

You Will Need:

Paper and writing instrument

Directions:

As you prepare a meal, discuss what will be served and ask your child to create a menu. Fold the piece of paper in half. Have your child create the menu by writing the word or sound on one side of the paper and drawing a picture of the food on the other. Do this for each food. Have the child present the menu to the family.

Tip:

Make this activity fun, not a test. Your child might copy words off of boxes.
