Our Programs

“Our kids love their preschool teachers and love the friends they’ve made here.  A warm, caring staff of teachers and administrators.  This small school fosters arts as well as traditional subjects, and offers extracurricular activities as well.  I know my kids are developing a positive attitude towards teacher and learning that will stay with them all their lives.”  -Submitted by a parent

Infant Program

From the moment Children are born they exhibit an awareness of the world around them.  Our loving and nurturing staff introduces babies to sights and sounds through verbal interaction, visual stimulation and the sensation of touch, toys and manipulative. 

Our teachers are CPR certified and fully trained in child development.  We place great emphasis on parent communication and provide a daily summary of your child’s accomplishments. 


Toddler Center

At the toddler stage, children will begin to learn the basic colors, shapes, numbers and letters.  This is taught through creative outlets such as arts and crafts activities, as well as repetitive rhymes and stories.  Children learn through play and active exploration in the learning centers.  Safe play and structures and toys encourage small and large motor skills, independence and self-confidence.  Your toddler will learn to share with and care for others as he/she develops socialization skill and manners.
