Preschool: Ages 2-4

The Preschool Program fosters intellectual, physical, emotional and social growth. With the use of manipulative materials that are developmentally appropriate, the child chooses or is presented activities that stimulate and cultivate a love of exploration and discovery. Each child is nurtured to lay the foundation for future academic achievement with the focus on the development of the whole child.
