Through a combination of teacher-led and free choice activities, your child will have the opportunity to explore, create, and imagine through art, literacy, language, math, science, and play. Our passionate, caring teachers and age-appropriate curriculum aim to help each child reach his or her full potential. Our Preschool program serves children ages 2.9-5 years old.
Due to COVID-19, our childcare program is developing new protocols and procedures. Please visit our COVID-19 Childcare Policies and Procedures page for more information.
