Fall Preschool Registration

Fall Registration is Open

Our preschool offers bright, spacious classrooms with small class sizes. Each classroom will have a teacher and a teacher’s assistant, to ensure your child receives lots of personal attention! We offer a Pre-Kindergarten Program, a Preschool Program, an Early Preschool Program, and a Toddler Program. Your child can attend 2 days, 3 days or 5 days. We accept children from the ages of 20 months to those who are not yet ready for kindergarten.

Toddler Program - 24 months old by 12/1
Our structured group learning program is designed to ease each child's transition from home to school. This fosters socialization and independence in your child. The Toddler program emphasizes social skills, and language and communication development. We are also here to help with potty training!

Early Preschool - 30 months to 40 months old
Early Preschool is for children in the process of transitioning from toddler to preschool students. Daily learning experiences are planned to promote independence, enhance social skills and build the confidence needed to reach their potential and prepare them for Preschool and beyond.

Preschool - 36 months old by 12/1
The hands-on approach in our 3 year old program enables each child to develop age appropriate fine motor and gross motor skills, as well as to improve communication and listening skills. It also reinforces social skills and introduces children to pre-reading, writing, math, science and other education skills.

Pre-Kindergarten - 4 years old by 12/1
Our teachers employ center-based activities tailored to meet the individual learning styles of each child. The program fosters growth, independence and self-esteem through accomplishments. Children learn how to make good decisions and enhance their language based skills which prepare them for successful entry into Kindergarten.

Early Drop-Off
To assist our working parents, we provide an early drop-off option for our morning session.
