Our Philosophy:  Through interacting with peers, adults, and available materials, children will develop to the fullest potential socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively, and academically.

Taught by a licensed elementary teacher, our Pre-Kindergarten program follows a play-based philosophy where teachers act as guides to nurture imagination, encourage independence and self-esteem, and develop kindness, courtesy and self discipline.
