Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe preschool should be an exciting and educational experience for children. Because preschool is usually a student's first exposure to peer group interaction and the basic fundamentals of education, it is our intent to provide an environment that enriches these first experiences and instills in the child an enthusiasm for school now and the years ahead.
