Our Focus

Our 2's program provides a safe and nurturing first learning environment. Our free play, small group activities, and circle time encourages social interaction.  Children are introduced to a structured, yet flexible daily plan designed to help children transition easily from home to school.  The classroom ratio is 1:4.


Our 3's program fosters positive relationships with peers and adults to play and work cooperatively.  We present age appropriate activities to promote development of fine and gross motor skills in preparation for reading and writing.  We use movement and multi sensory approach to skill building.  The classroom ratio is 1:6.

Our 4's program develops skills and confidence needed to build a strong foundation for kindergarten and beyond.  Children are encouraged to take care of their own needs, environment, and community.  We provide an atmosphere where each child can grow and learn in their own unique way.  The classroom ratio is 1:7.

Our Full Day program for 2's, 3's and 4's  includes morning Preschool, followed by lunch and rest time. In the afternoons the children will explore themes such as world cultures, American music genres, and emotions.

All classes are 5 days a week.
