Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Koala-T Preschool is an early childhood education center dedicated to providing a safe nurturing environment in which children can learn and grow. It is our goal to work with parents to ensure every child's individual needs are met.
We provide developmentally appropriate curriculum including language, art, music, science, math, social skills and physical skills.
Children are actively involved in hands-on learning throughout the day.
We strive to enhance children's self-esteem and are dedicated to ensuring children have a positive and successful early educational school experience.
We believe that a strong foundation in these early formative years will enable children to succeed in numerous ways for years to come.
