Many parents are looking for an intentional learning experience for their children ages 2 to 5. They want their children to develop in language, math, art, music, physical actitivy, and more. Of course, they also want them to play, make friends, and be excited to learn.
If you’re looking for an all-day, year-round educational environment for your child, then we invite you to learn more about our Preschool.
Our Preschool offers a unique opportunity for our youngest learners. This enriching year-round experience is designed to prepare students socially, cognitively, and physically for an effortless transition to kindergarten and beyond.

Through play-based learning, students use their curiosity to explore the world around them. Students build foundational knowledge in literacy, mathematics, phonemic awareness, writing, and communication. Our caring and invested teachers know each child and help every step of the way.

The all-day schedule still leaves time for play and exploration—in a warm and caring environment.

We'd like to show you around. Schedule your tour today!
