Play-Based Learning

All learning and assessments are done in an engaging, play-based manner. 


Whole Child

We work to address pre-school learning—fine and gross motor skills, age-appropriate communication, social and emotional development, and how to engage successfully in life.


Social & Emotional Learning

One of our goals is teaching emotion identification, self-regulation, and how to embrace the uniqueness of those around them. Preschool is about learning social skills through play. 


Family Engagment

Families are the foundation of all growth and learning for preschoolers.  We want to foster those relationships and encourage family involvement in their child's development at school.
