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.

Juice Pops

You Will Need:

Juice, popsicle sticks, ice cube tray, small plastic pitcher or measuring cup with a pouring spout

Directions:

Make or buy ready-made juice. Help your child pour the juice into the ice cube trays and put them in the freezer. When the juice begins to harden, put a popsicle stick in each cube, then let freeze the rest of the way.

Tip:

Making juice pops is a fun activity for warm weather, and they can be a fun, healthy afterschool snack or dessert. With all cooking activities, it's helpful to make preparation and cleaning up part of every project.
