Preparing Every Child for Kindergarten

To engage and nurture your child, we provide a balance of freedom and instruction. The classroom is designed as a learning community, where your child not only builds skills vital to success in kindergarten, but also gains respect for others, and a strong sense of confidence.

The Preschool program provides a focus on:

  • Fostering independence
  • Cooperation & communication skills
  • Hands-on learning
  • Literacy and number concepts

Curriculum & Developmental Scales

Early Innovators, our STEM curriculum, cultivates strong innovators and thinkers. Children learn best when making connections between diverse skills and concepts. We integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math throughout the classroom. Teachers use our digital lesson planning tool to generate customized curriculum, based on assessment and observation, to meet the needs of each child, as they progress along 10 developmental scales:
