Preschool Program

Our Preschool program offers a welcoming and caring atmosphere filled with many opportunities for your child to learn and grow as individuals.  Our program has a mix of both structured and unstructured time enabling children to learn at their own pace. We view play as an intricate part of childhood where children are able to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.
