We are pleased to offer a program centered around the whole child and how children learn in their individual ways. We strive to teach children academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually in an age appropriate manner. Our day focuses on language, literacy, math, science, social studies and art using a variety of materials and processes. We have a program for children who will be 3 before September 1st and a program for children who will be 4 before September 1st as well.
We are licensed by DCYFand participate in the Bright Stars Program and offer DHS services to families.
We are pleased to announce that we will be offering additional technology in our Pre-K classes for the upcoming school year in the form of Amazon Kids’ Fire tablets.
