We offer two programs for children who are three to five years of age. 

For children who are three prior to September 1st of the school year, we offer a two-day program - Tuesday/Thursday mornings.  Maximum class size is 20 children with three teachers. This program enhances our student's social skills as they learn through play by presenting developmentally appropriate activities.

Our curriculum presents all kindergarten readiness skills in a developmentally appropriate manner.
