Our preschool classes are designed to help children develop physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually. We accomplish this through creative, developmentally-appropriate lessons and activities. We incorporate music, art, learning centers, P.E., computers, and Spanish into our curriculum. Our desire is to partner with families to help children reach their full potential.
