Pre-Kindergarten 3 & 4 Year Old Program

Program Description
Our Pre-Kindergarten program provides a learning environment that is welcoming, sage, healthy, warm and stimulating. Each child develops academically, socially, emotionally, spiritually, cognitively, and physically while in our program. We provide opportunities for children to broaden and strengthen their knowledge through developmentally appropriate learning experiences.

Pre-Kindergarten gives children a chance to learn, become excited about school, and be better students. Our curriculum builds upon what children already know and helps them connect it to new concepts and skills. Children are exposed to themes/topics that are integrated and taught across all areas of the curriculum. Enrolling your child in our Pre-Kindergarten program facilitates the transition to kindergarten and grade school. Enroll your child in our Pre-K Program and encourage him/her to a great start to a bright future!
