PRESCHOOL 
  • Must be three by September 1

Our preschool teachers provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere where young children learn to love school! Early in the year, we establish the foundation of trust from which we build each child's self-confidence, independence and enthusiasm. Our curriculum nurtures curiosity through play, art, music, movement, and individualized instruction. Preschoolers are introduced to early academic skills in their play and during teacher-led small group activities

PRE-K
  • Must be four by September 1

Our pre-k program uses the dynamic curriculum, Let's Begin with the Letter People and it's STEM supplement, DIG: Develop, Inspire, Grow. These well-known and exciting programs facilitate explicit instruction in literacy, reading, language arts, science, math and social studies. Most importantly, our pre-k students continue to play and explore in a secure but challenging environment. At the end of the year, they are thrilled about school and are well-prepared to enter kindergarten with confidence and the essential skills for success. 

KINDERGARTEN
  • Must be five by September 1

In a dynamic classroom with a low student/teacher ratio, our kindergartners begin their academic careers with inspiring curriculum and individualized instruction. Emphasisis placed on developing strong academic and thinking skills while encouraging children to be themselves - curious explorers of the world!

We provide explicit instruction in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, music, Spanish, art and P.E.. We also balance this instruction with time to play during recess and free-choice activities at the end of the day. Kindergarten is a full-day program with before- and after-care available.
