Fun is incorporated into lear each activity has a purpose.ning;

A child's first experience in school is very important to insure they are excited about the learning process.

We focus on team building activities which helps develop the social aspect and a willingness to work with others.

We foster a positive learning environment by working with your child's strengths and weaknesses to develop their unique learning style.

Academically your child will write their name, count to 100, learn reading readiness skills, and much more.

Your child is not just another number at our preschool, they are treated as #1. Fun-filled trips are planned to get your kids out into the community. We encourage interactive parent involvement through weekly newsletters that highlight what we learned so you can continue the learning process at home. We also want parents to come to school during special party days and field trips.

A NON-refundable deposit is due at the time of registration. Students must be potty trained! Refer a friend and Save!
