Pre-K through Kindergarten

Our early learners program lets young children be children - free to explore, play and imagine. Designed to lead students from wonder to discovery, our program helps them associate learning with pleasure and fulfillment. Focus is on the process rather than the product. Hands-on projects introduce activities and materials to help children acquire sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills. The curriculum, within an age-appropriate framework, is adaptable to children's varying needs and interests.

Three programs are offered for the morning (8:00-11:00 a.m.) or afternoon (12:00-3:00 p.m.):
