Preschool Programs

GENERAL

We also offer a young 3’s class during the spring semester. Children must be toilet independent by the first day of class. The preschool staff is well trained in early childhood education and recreational trends.  We believe in the philosophy that children learn through play.  The curriculum includes developmental appropriate experiences in art, language, literature, math, science, athletics and health.
