Preschool is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. In our preschool classrooms, the children will begin learning handwriting skills, letter recognition, numbers, colors, shapes, and basic reading skills using a Nature-Based teaching and "Handwriting Without Tears" curriculum. 

This important transition year is one where acquisition of new skills is accelerated. Our younger children will learn social skills, how to interact in a classroom environment, and how to work together as a group. We have recently added a STEAM and Spanish curriculum. 

STEAM education encompasses the fields of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM). This educational framework integrates these fields into a cohesive learning environment based on real-world applications. It’s an approach that acknowledges the connectivity of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics, which prepares children for a world where these skills are indispensable.

Spanish Immersion Preschool is an early education environment where Spanish is taught naturally through daily activities. Teachers are fluent and native speakers and use the language 100% throughout the day. This communication style is included during instruction, outdoor play and meal times. All of the children will participate in the Spanish program. Each classroom will spend a day with the Spanish teacher.

We hope to make your child’s learning experience fun and exciting and instill a love of learning that will last throughout his/her years of schooling.
