From the Director:

We use individualized learning times to reach the indivudal needs of each child. We also do a lot of Art projects as a tool for working on fine motor skill development.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Because we work with each child individually, we are able to reach each child on their level and work with them to challenge them without them feeling that they are being compared to the other students in the class.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that all children entering Preschool are at different developmental levels and we tailor our program to meet each child at their academic and social level and challenge them throughout the school year. It is our goal to help them grow socially as well as challenge their minds academically.

A Typical Day

We start off each class with a Circle Time where we do the calendar as well as Show and Tell. We then have a free play/ work time for an hour to an hour and a half. During this time, the kids have free play and rotate through a couple of learning activities including one on one time with the teacher. After this block of time, we clean up the classroom, have a quiet reading time followed by snack and a story time before it is time to go home.

Home-School Connection
