Preschool Age Program

Our Preschool Age Program is designed for children ages 2-1/2 and potty trained through 5 years of age, and is available 1-5 days per week. This is our school readiness program for children who attend our Center. It includes an extra enrichment focus on school readiness for those children whose birthday is on/before August 31 and will be attending kindergarten the following September.

Preschool Curriculum

We use "The Creative CurriculumĀ® for Preschoolers" to form the basis of our fully integrated program for 3- to 5-year-old children. It is nationally known for its forward thinking, comprehensive, and rigorously researched model. Our approach helps us successfully plan and implement a content-rich, hands on, developmentally appropriate program that supports active learning and encourages a child's progress in all developmental areas. Your child's life and progress here are documented in their portfolio and can be accessed by you at any time.
