Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Program

   Our Program is designed to encourage creativity, enhance academic learning, build a positive self concept, and allow for positive interactions with peers and adults.


   We believe children learn best when they are actively involved in dramatic play, music, movement, art, and fine and gross motor activities.


   Children will be encouraged to become independent and self reliant as they make choices and decisions for their activities throughout the day.

   Building on prior learning and experiences, our curriculum exposes children to the academic foundation needed for a successful transition from preschool to kindergarten.


   Within the traditional preschool schedule, emphasis will be placed on mastering the following developmental skills:
