Our Approach To Education

Through intentional, play-based activities and classroom activities that build both social skills and independent learning, our pre-kindergarten students benefit from individualized educational support on a daily basis. Teachers engage in play with children, support each child’s growing independence and peer relationships and help children brainstorm ideas.

Learning Environment
In the preschool classroom, you will see learning centers stocked with materials that are intentionally placed to encourage purposeful and engaging play. Dramatic play, library, blocks, creative arts, science, math, and sensory experiences are all offered to children daily.
Learning Activities
Your child will experience a well-rounded balance of learning activities and many opportunities to develop important skills needed to be successful in school. Skills range from learning basic colors worth younger children to exploring the alphabet with older children.
