Our Preschool program provides a warm, welcoming environment where your child can grow from a bundle of joy to a bundle of curiosity. Your child’s primary caregiver is a nurturing child development professional who is focused on creating experiences and opportunities that invite exploration and support the rapid and important development that is occurring in a child’s fourth year.

Our Preschool program helps children advance skills in core pre-academic areas such as literacy, and math, as well as in other essential areas such as art, social and emotional well-being, and health and mindfulness. Our approach ensures that children are exposed to an array of learning activities and that thrive in all areas of child development, creative thinking, complex problem solving, empathetic collaboration, curious investigation, and astute decision making.
