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.

You Will Need:

A timer

Directions:

Suggest that your child "race the clock" to put her toys away. Say, "Let's see if you can put all your blocks away before the bell rings….On your mark, get set, go!"

Tip:

Break the job down into small tasks. Say things like, "Let's see if you can put all the toys away that are close to the sofa before the timer goes off," etc.
