Our Pre K 4 preschool program features age-appropriate instruction in a stimulating learning environment. Composed of multiple research-based curriculums and learning tools, our comprehensive program is designed to fully prepare your scholar for Kindergarten success as they become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Your scholar will develop language, physical, social, and cognitive skills that will provide a strong foundation for his or her educational journey. The key components to our program are Creative Curriculum and ABEKA. The growth mindset, these programs, combined with our qualified, experienced, and dedicated educators are the ingredients to a recipe for success! Our educators are trained in the current best practices in early childhood education and strive to be intentional in all interactions, looking for “teachable moments” when your 4 year old shows interest in the world around them.
Additionally, our teaching practices instill the belief that our abilities can be developed through consistency and determination. Educators discourage views of self that include statements such as “I am just not good at counting” or “I can’t draw very well.” With support and guidance, we encourage your scholar to see their skills as dynamic and developing. Educators and scholars gather as a group to share ideas, listen, develop attention span, promote oral communication, and learn new concepts and skills daily. Circle Time experience features many components that are frequently seen in school-age classrooms including using the calendar, making weather observations, and charting and graphing.

Educators create opportunities to conduct story time, sing, learn finger-plays, and enjoy an assortment of games to support new knowledge; such as numbers, shapes, phonemic awareness, and letter recognition. At this age, our educators are continuing to develop your scholar’s foundation for handwriting success. Through the utilization of ABEKA, your scholar will enjoy activities such letter art to form important fine motor skills that ensure a correct pencil grip and eventually letter formation.

Over 90% of our scholars score above average on Kindergarten readiness evaluations.
