Welcome to 3-year-old Preschool

Our preschool program focuses on school readiness with a structured weekly curriculum that teaches art, science, math, writing and social skills. Our teachers help to strengthen each child’s decision making and self -help skills in a safe supportive classroom environment.

The preschool classroom is set up to allow preschoolers to involve themselves in independent decision making in their classroom. The children can explore dramatic play, literary activities, discovery science projects and a quiet reading area.

We use the Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum. The Handwriting Without Tears curriculum draws from years of innovation and research to provide developmentally appropriate, multisensory tools and strategies for your classroom. The program follows research that demonstrates children learn more effectively by actively doing, with materials that address all styles of learning.
