Preschool Care

Our preschool program prepares your preschooler for Kindergarten and beyond through a mix of learning through play by following the development of the whole child and their independence.  We encourage children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts.

 

Your preschool child will experience music, dance, rhythm, art, science, math, literacy, dramatic play, and more.  We teach preschool children good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of themselves, which will make a difference throughout their lives. 

Areas of development include social, emotional, cognitive, and physical.  Teachers create weekly lesson plans with specific activities which will be posted in the classroom regularly and included in the monthly calendar with themes for the week so you can incorporate the themes into daily life at home.
