Preschool Programs

A Safe Place to Learn and Grow

Our preschool programs strike the perfect balance between helping your child learn and grow while also letting them (and you!) enjoy these magical years.

Wonderful teachers, kid-friendly facilities, and affordable rates make us a favorite among kids and parents alike. Our only requirement: for all programs, children must be potty-trained.

Tiny Tots

Tiny Tots prepares children ages 3 to 5 for TK and Kindergarten. Your child will form friendships, gain self-confidence, and develop age-appropriate motor, language, and math skills. Special presentations, field trips, and lots of outdoor time round out the curriculum.

Kinder Programs

Kinder Ready is for children entering Kindergarten the following Fall. This program uses small pull-out groups and a “Get Ready for School” curriculum, which teachers adjust throughout the year to meet the needs of the children. Children can be enrolled in both Tiny Tots and Kinder Ready.
