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.

Learning at Home

Face Collages

You Will Need:

Magazines or photos, scissors, and glue sticks or glue and brushes


With your child, find faces in magazines or duplicate photographs and cut them out. Talk about and respond to your child’s reaction to some of the faces. Ask what she’s thinking. Help her notice skin tones, glasses, hair attributes, etc. and expand on her recognition of physical differences.


It's the process, not the product that is important. Children might cut up the pictures into small pieces, use too much or not enough glue, etc. It’s all about learning by experimentation!
