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.

Letter Hunt

You Will Need:

Square pieces of paper with each letter of the alphabet on them, tape

Directions:

Tape the letters to the wall in different places in the house. Sit in one room and have your child find and retrieve the letter that you call out (if you have more than one child, let them take turns).

To add more of a challenge, don't let your child see you where you hide the letters.
