We offer programs for: Toddler, Junior & Senior Pre-schoolers and Kinder programs.

Each day children will learn about social skills such as sharing and getting along with others. Various opportunities will be provided for children to participate in creative arts, reading and story telling, dramatic play, sensory experiences, group time, science, outdoor play, music and movement, and phonics/cognitive work.

Each month a calendar is available to parents. It indicates monthly themes, special events, and important reminders.

Books/Story Time: We explore the alphabet and encourage the development and interest in reading and books.

Dramatic Play: This provides an opportunity to role play and imitate daily experiences.
