Our Programs

MORNING

Our morning program meets from 9 a.m. till 12:00 noon. The children spend the first ninety minutes outside, and the second ninety minutes inside. Mixed age with children from 2-5 years old, children have access to art, small motor, large motor, waterplay, sand play, as well as open ended activities’ lnside children will have two circle times, a mini-meal, as well as free play mixed with art, books, manipulatives and dramatic play.

PRE-K

The Pre K is designed to completely educate your child about their next educational experience, Kindergarten. At the same time, we allow them to learn through play for one more year, with an emphasis on art, open ended activities, music, singing and imaginative play. We will teach Zoo phonics, printing skills, math, and what is expected when they go to kindergarten. PreK is a special class, with 20 children and 2 teachers, creating an intimate and special experience.

ALL DAY

Children have the option to stay with us all day, either by attending in the morning, then staying for a nap and play, or they can combine the morning and the Pre-K program together. In the nap room we have a small, intimate environment where children can rest or fall asleep. A snack is served after they get up, and then they join the Pre-K for a play time.

All day hours are
8 a.m. till 5 p.m.

We create a warm and nurturing environment for each child.

Through open ended play based experiences children flourish, and grow to love their school, taking pride in belonging to a community.

Facilitated by a staff with 30 plus years’ experience with preschoolers, one teacher for every seven children, you will quickly relax and feel the warm, caring environment where your child will learn above all else that this is their school family. Come join us: we’ve been waiting for you….

A Word From Our Director

“I’d like to invite you to call and make an appointment to see our school. A school is more than just a building. It’s the laughter of the students, the nurturing and learning that our excellent teachers provide and of course the common goal of the staff to create a sense of learning in all of our students!”
