Philosophy

Welcome to our Preschool!  We believe that children learn best through play.  Our experienced staff guides children through weekly emergent topics, providing rich, process-based activities for them to explore.  Our smaller classroom sizes and positive school culture inspires children to build a confident, compassionate and curious spirit.  Children practice their early literacy skills using the Handwriting Without Tears and Jolly Phonics curriculums.  Our program also fosters a joyful, healthy lifestyle with dedicated times in our Large Motor Room, outdoor playground spaces, and school-wide events.
