Preschool: 2 yrs – 3 yrs
Our preschool recognizes and values each child’s unique characteristics and abilities, and we strive to facilitate academic learning and social interactions through many developmentally appropriate activities and experiences. Center-based play offers many opportunities for each child to make choices. Teacher-directed activities introduce and reinforce academic concepts in a print-rich environment. Most importantly, self-esteem is fostered because our program is designed so that every child enjoys success.

Key cultural awareness of identity characteristics
During the first years of life, babies and young children acquire the skills necessary for healthy growth and development, setting the stage for later success in school and life. These skills are acquired through relationships with family members and other significant caregivers. Children need nurturing, responsive and loving care to inspire their initiative, curiosity, and hunger to learn. They also need help from their parents and well-trained professionals when struggling. Not all children develop at the same rate, and the above guidelines may not apply to your particular child. Consult with your pediatrician if you have any concerns.
