Preschool Care

Our five preschool classrooms are always filled with new discoveries. Our experienced teachers are always using new and enticing experiences to the help the 3 and 4 year old children to learn.  With a ratio of 1:9, teachers have ample opportunity to guide children as needed through a variety of classroom activities. Most of our classrooms have two full time assistants to ensure quality care every day.

Our preschool classrooms contain many different learning centers:

Children also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of enrichment programs offered through our program center.

Many of our teachers also teach a second language and provide special times for music appreciation. We do offer a Y enrichment and sport classes such as Kinder sports, soccer, tennis, cooking, ballet, and more in addition to the curriculum for an additional fee.  In the spring, we also have a Kindergarten Readiness class as part of the curriculum for the 4 year old children that reviews any social or academic skills that your child may require.
