At this stage children are ready to expand their horizons, and our highly experienced and certified teachers will encourage them to learn and explore, while helping them make sense of all their new encounters. Preschoolers are more secure and ready for a higher level of challenge. Our well-rounded Preschool program supports these strides and enables their continued growth and success.
Your child will find self-expression and creativity through dramatic play, art, music and other planned activities. Musical concepts are introduced through songs, rhythms, instruments and group instructed ensembles and are always an exciting time full of sounds and smiles!
In our Preschool program, your child will be introduced to more routine and structured activities and daily scheduling. Your child will build vocabulary, learn numerical skills, and engage in a variety of age-appropriate daily activities to continue fostering good character development, social skills and educational concepts and content.
There exciting days are filled with components from their curriculum and daily planning including; learning about nature, science, healthy habits, good citizenship and participate in daily fitness and family style dining with good nutritional awareness, and building confidence, self-awareness and friendships. Our beautiful campus full of green space and age-appropriate play areas will surely please any three year old child while providing healthy opportunities for teachers to continue your child’s education and exploration through a nature-inspired theme.
