Preschool Program

Our “whole-child” curriculum addresses the important domains of a preschool child’s development through creative hands-on language and literacy, math and science,  music, movement, and art activities incorporated to develop positive learning attitudes; introduce basic concepts and skills; teach social skills and ethical responsibility; help children form responsible emotional behaviors; and encourage physical health and personal hygiene.

We recognize the role of the parent as the first and most important teacher in a child’s life. Children develop at his/her own rate; however, parent involvement and a good preschool education strongly promote kindergarten readiness.

Daily Preschool Schedule

Early Bird Arrival (8:00 AM – 8:15 AM)
Early arriving parents need to park and bring the child into the school where the child is then directed to several activity areas where they can gradually warm-up to the environment and play freely under the supervision of a teacher. Early drop off is an additional $2.00 per day.

Lunch Bunch (11:30 AM-12:30 PM)

Lunch Bunch is $4.50 per day for the hour supervision. Children bring a sack lunch from home and enjoy eating together with teachers and peers. We do not need advance notice for your child to participate, just be sure to tell a Teacher when you drop your child off so that we can help them get their lunch in the fridge.
