Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Just For KIDS Preschool aims to provide a safe, stimulating and fun environment in which children ages two and a half to five can socially interact, play and develop a positive self-esteem.

We will provide our students with a variety of play materials, art opportunities, music, and physical activities to encourage a love of learning. By providing an attentive program, Just For KIDS will encourage the complete development of each individual child."
