Child-focused and Play Based
Each year is another opportunity for us to work closely as partners in educating your child. At a very young age, children have an infinite potential to absorb knowledge. We recognize that preschool is vital in laying the foundation for all future learning. Our curriculum is teacher-generated using a variety of early childhood resources and research-based programs that encompass the concept that children learn from hands-on, multi-sensory, creative experiences in their environment. We offer endless opportunities to learn new skills, concepts, and ideas - all building on children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn.
