Our Preschool Program

Engaging children intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially

Our preschool classrooms focus on children’s newly emerging skills and advanced use of language, math, and scientific thought. Multi-disciplinary learning centers encourage individual skills and emerging interests in academics and creative expression.

Our curriculum stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and exploratory nature to prepare children for lifelong learning.

In the preschool classroom, we cannot have any outside food brought into the center.  Morning and afternoon snacks are available as part of the program.  For lunch, parents can either take the children out to lunch or purchase the catered lunch for $5. Please click Menu

Learning at Home

I Spy with My Little Eye

You Will Need:

Imagination

Directions:

Start the game by selecting an object in the room (or car) and give clues to your child so he can try to guess what the object is. Say, “I spy with my little eye, something that is… (give a hint of color, shape, use, etc). Then, have your child ask up to 20 "yes" or "no" questions to see if he can figure out what it is. Then, switch and have your child pick an object while you ask the questions.

Tip:

This is a wonderful game to play while commuting or during waiting times.
