General School Mission

"A Children's Carousel provides a warm and safe environment for toddlers to five year olds. Our preschool provide a developmentally appropriate theme based program that focuses on each child's individual learning style. The Early Childhood curriculum provides students with hands-on experiences in math, science, language, cultural diversity, music and art, offering the children many opportunities to explore and use their large and small motor skills. In addition cooking is offered on a regular basis. The children are encouraged to socialize in a positive manner using problem solving, listening, verbal and group skills.
Our unique in-door center houses Carousel City; Where Children Explore All Their Tomorrow’s Today!
Carousel City was created to allow children to experience a variety of learning opportunities through dramatic play, experiential exploration and social interaction. The preschool children have an opportunity to visit Carousel City on a regular basis and explore different areas of the infrastructure of their city. The Carousel City Performance Arts Center is a specially designed theatre where children may perform with a variety of dramatic and musical enhancements. Visiting the Carousel City Construction Company children have an opportunity to use a variety of tools and equipment to create projects, and enhance math, large and fine motor skills. The Pet Store and Veterinary Clinic features pets such as a live bunny, fish and birds. Children learn about Firefighters, Police Officers and EMS at the Public Safety Building which switches mid year to accommodate Carousel Fix It Shop. In the Fix It Shop children can learn about the inner workings of the small appliances we use in our daily lives. The Grocery store reinforces math and social skills. An International Restaurant features food, menus and customs from a different culture every month. Carousel City was custom designed to reflect the diversity in today’s society while maintaining an environment conducive to a quality preschool experience.
Our curriculum is continually updated to meet the growing needs of an ever-changing world. Computer/Media Center, American Sign Language and Spanish are part of our learning adventure for pre-schoolers. "
