Our teachers have a program committed to the following goals:

  • Meet the individual developmental needs of each child
  • Help nurture each child’s self-esteem and relationship with other children
  • Provide a safe, healthy environment where children can feel free to discover and learn
  • Encourage each child to develop problem solving skills and decision making abilities
  • Introduce each child to music, art, literature, friendship and creative play
  • Meet the needs of parents in further developing parenting skills

Our preschool program helps prepare children for Transitional Kindergarten (TK), Early Admission Kindergarten (EAK) and Kindergarten.
