Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

Welcome to WeeCare Preschool! Wee Care about your child and you. In our ever-changing society, quality care and learning is of paramount importance; a safe, secure, stimulating environment is invaluable. At Wee Care, under the guidance of qualified teachers and care-givers, we offer children a warm social setting in which they can develop to their fullest potential. Wee Care is small enough that individual needs are met and goals achieved; Wee Care typically has enrollment of approximately 65-70 children, divided into six age-appropriate classrooms of approximately 10-15 children. Through our early childhood approach to play and learning, Wee Care children are provided with education and care which will meet their personal, developmental, and academic needs within a creative and relaxed environment. We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our program.

We have sensible pricing that surprises most parents, which is why, in part, we have remained a vibrant hub for children for nearly three decades.
