Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The ABC's and so much more ...
First and foremost Ladybug School is a "PRE" preschool with a loving, nurturing home away from home warmth. By emphasizing social skills such as sharing, respect for one another, and conflict resolution we prepare your 2-3 year old for the next step in their preschool/ kindergarten education. Through collaborative projects in our art and cooking classes, working together as an ensemble in music and movement classes as well as playing in the dramatic play areas, children are offered many opportunities to hone their social skills while making important and exciting observations and discoveries in a supportive and nurturing environment.
