Preschool

Preschool

We create an environment where all children feel welcome, comfortable, and safe. Children learn through play and that is just what we intend to do.  In addition to our indoor time, we will also spend time outdoors experiencing the elements of water, sand, and even mud. Learning will happen each day through dramatic play, art expression, and lots of physical activity. Our Preschool programs focus on early school readiness fostering the developmental growth of language, literacy, social, emotional, and life skills.

The academic school year for our preschool programs runs from September to early June. During the summer months we do not hold the morning (9am-12:00pm) classroom curriculum portion but instead focus on a less rigorous open-center based format.

Financial Assistance is available and DHS is accepted.
