Our program is a developmentally appropriate play program where children learn in a process oriented environment. They learn to play and they play to learn! Stories, songs, fingerplays and art activities are all part of the daily learning experience.

There is a balance between active and quiet activities and indoor and outdoor play.

Field trips and visitors to the classroom provide enrichment to the preschool curriculum.

A snack is served each day.

Classes are vertically grouped, ages 3-5 combined, under the instruction of a qualified teacher and an aide. Individualized instruction is used to meet the unique needs of each child.
