We welcome you to visit our Preschool classroom to see learning, fun and growing in action. Some exciting things your child will do; play outside daily, learn self-help skills, join group time, learn days of the week, challenge his/her mind and most importantly be safe and well taken care of.
Teachers utilize The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool to guide their daily teaching. This curriculum is based on the latest, most current research about how young children develop and learn. Leave the work to us, all meals are included.
We truly enjoy our career and know we make a difference when we hear the appreciation and acknowledgment from both parents and local school district screening professionals and most importantly watching your child learn, grow and succeed!
