Providing a Great Education with a Moral Foundation

Our preschool offers programs for children as young as 18 months to 5 years old. Our curriculum is theme-based and offers age appropriate activities, projects and learning centers to develop letter and number recognition and to build Kindergarten readiness skills. We provide hands-on opportunities to engage students in science, math, art and social studies.  Singing and creative play are incorporated into our daily program. Special weekly classes include Music, Gym, Chapel, Spanish, and Manners. 

Since play is critical to the development of a child, we offer academics based in play. Through play, children explore the world around them by learning how to get along with others, by expressing feelings through language, by strengthening fine and gross motor skills, and by incorporating math concepts.  At our nursery school, we enrich the play experience through books, music, art and provide materials that allow for open ended creativity. Simply put, play is the "work" of childhood.
