Core Preschool Program is from 9:00am-12:30pm. Extended care available until 3:30pm.
Our pre-nursery program is designed for the very young child to transition from the sensory-motor world of toddlers to an increasingly social world. Through stimulating learning centers, children have the opportunity to move purposefully, assert their independence, and learn to communicate with their peers. Our experienced and talented teachers use these centers and many enriching activities to foster learning and growth in a warm and nurturing environment. Activities are open ended and emphasize process over product.
