Preschool Program

Your preschool child is involved in many hands-on activities to enhance his or her learning experiences. Our approach to education provides a learning opportunity that encourages children to become independent and develop an understanding of their environment. Our day is filled with a variety of choices for learning, with a good balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated activities. Our classrooms are divided into Interest Areas that encourage your child to explore and imagine while developing school-readiness skills. We provide a brief report informing you about your child’s day.

By combining both self-directed and structured activities, the preschool curriculum provides opportunities for the children to develop skills and encourage creativity. Planned activities focus on problem-solving, language, physical and social/emotional skill building. Children enjoy a variety of activities with emphasis placed on school readiness.
