There are reading nooks, sensory tables, pretend play areas, dress-up and exploratory materials, musical instruments and outdoor places to explore. Learning experiences are planned to promote each toddler's growing independence, to enhance social skills and to build the confidence needed to reach their individual potential and prepare for preschool and beyond.

PreSchoolOur Preschool/Kindergarten Readiness classrooms focus on children’s newly emerging skills and advanced use of language, math and scientific thought. Children are physically and cognitively able to take on more challenges while still engaging in important foundational learning like friendship building and developing a strong self-concept. Multi-disciplinary learning encourages individual skills and emerging interests in academics, creative expression and outdoor learning. Our curriculum stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and prepares them for lifelong learning to succeed in school and beyond.
