Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our preschool curriculum is theme based and targets specific learning concepts and skillsbased on each child's individual age and development. We believe at our Learning that age appropriate education through contemporary curriculum, computer programs, children and teacher directed activities, and parent interaction are all keys to a successful learning experience.

A Typical Day

Arrival and greetings from the teacher. Circle time consists of reading and calender time. Self guide play with some direction given by teachers. Snack time is followed by some fresh air on the playground. The children return to class and continue to learn through play. We then serve a hot nutrious luch prepared in our commerical kitchen. Storytime follows lunch and then a well desrved rest or quited time.
Afternoons are just as busy as the morning with lots of interaction with the highly professional and trained staff members.
The end of the day is always a good feeling with lots of hugs given both ways to and from the staff and children
