Our Preschool Academics
Our Teachers spend each week focusing on a subject matter through different learning media. Teachers explore core themes in opening circle, reading, centers, art, and food to ensure that the lesson plans are experienced through all senses. Preschool children learn social and emotional skills through play and creativity.
