Our licensed program offers preschool education to children ages 33 months to 5 years. Our qualified teachers place an emphasis on social emotional development as well as preparing students academically for kindergarten. Our preschool holds a food license and offers fresh, healthy snacks daily.

Our daily routine includes free play through structured and unstructured activities which include art and science projects, large and small muscle movements, stories and music, group time, individual project work and character development activities. We strive to provide an intellectual and social experience, while also focusing on a student’s overall health and well-being. Each student enrolled in our preschool, receives access to our brand-new facility including our gym and Indoor Playground. Students also receive a session of swimming lessons at no additional cost.
