Program Description

We provide a warm and loving atmosphere where the children socialize, learn and develop new friendships. Daily programs offer free play (for socialization and sharing skills) and adult-directed time (for listening skills). Our classroom includes our housekeeping area; quiet area with books, puzzles and games; sand and water table; painting easel; and large motor equipment for active play. Classes incorporate music, literature, language activities, group games, science activities, creative dramatics, sensory play and daily art activities into a weekly theme. We promote self-control and self-confidence. Children are encouraged to be curious and creative. We believe a cooperative preschool experience lets the parents share that experience as the children grow in preparation for kindergarten.
