Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Alkeisha's Preschool is a child care facility designed to give both parents, and children, the experience of a loving and nurturing environment.
Alkeisha's was established because of working parent's just like you. We encountered many obstacles in our search for the right facility for our children. Thus it became our goal to help today's busy parents find high quality child care in a comfortable, happy and reassuring atmosphere. Alkeisha's is the realization of that goal. We believe that children are the most important part of any center or group experience. We also believe that each area of development - physical, social, emotional, and intellectual must be acknowledged and provided.
