Pre-School

img-program-preschoolpreschoolPreschoolers arrive at their rooms ready for a full day of fun and learning. Our preschool environment is arranged so that children can engage in a series of structured and unstructured activities. Teachers encourage inquiry and wondering by guiding exploration of the natural world and using found materials for play and creative arts.

All of our children are treated with the care and respect they deserve. This will ensure that they have a foundation build the self esteem and confidence skills they need to achieve success in their future years. Teachers create discovery and play experiences that on build on skills such as  positive social interactions, problem solving, science, technology, math, literacy, creative arts, and music. We want children to become lifelong learners.
