Pre-School Program

Preschoo At this age children are lively, imaginative and playful. This is the age where children begin to ask hundreds of questions like: Where do I come from? What will I be like when I grow up? Why is the moon following me? Your child's motor skills, language, logical thinking, and social development change dramatically. Our main goal is to provide encouragement, support and access to play-based activities that enable the child to master early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts accompanied by arts, music, dance and other enrichment activities.

In this class, we build on the skills attained at the toddler class and begin to focus closely on preparing the children for Pre-K. With a strong focus on core subjects of math, and literacy we also emphasize social and motor skills.

Our indoor and outdoor playgrounds allow the kids to run around, be free from structure, and just be kids!

By the end of the school year, your child will have grasped and enhanced the following core skills (see also our sample daily schedule below and monthly themes tab)
