Pre-School Program

Pre-School Program

Our Program is child-centered and based upon the belief that play is the best way for children to learn. Our approach is individualized to meet each child’s needs and interests. Each classroom is organized with centers for creative art, literature, pre-writing, science, pre-math, dramatic play and cognitive and small motor development. The environment is planned to stimulate imagination and creativity, socialization, exploration and discovery, while challenging the use of muscles important to developing bodies.
