Preschool Program

Our preschool program prepares children socially and academically, as well as, supports and encourages the development of independence, responsibility, and confidence, all of which are essential for the child’s ongoing success in kindergarten. We focus on each child’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development by offering concrete, hands-on activities for the child to explore.

The preschool curriculum is designed to actively engage each child in developmentally age appropriate activities exploring the content areas of literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, the arts, and technology.

Our skilled teachers prepare a curriculum that is exciting and challenging, as well as supportive of each child's own learning style. Our preschool room arrangement creates the optimum learning environment. It allows children easy access to educational toys, materials, and books, enabling them to initiate and expand their activities. Each classroom is organized with areas for block play, manipulative toys, artistic creativity, dramatic play, and reading in addition to larger spaces for group activities.
