"Thank you for another wonderful and exciting year for Anna! She always looks forward to attending pre-K and loves her teachers!  Because of you she looks forward to kindergarten!"
- Wilkinson Family

As children enter preschool, they are ready to begin more group activities and group learning situations. Although a portion of their day is spent in structured activities such as circle time, art, music, etc., we believe that preschool students learn a great deal through play. We try to find a good balance between activities lead by our teachers (at a 1:10 ratio) and activities of the children’s choice. We strive to provide a safe and emotionally rewarding environment for our students so that they can begin to work towards independence and self-regulation. Parent volunteers are always welcome; our students love to “share” their day with you!

Pre-K Counts:
Pre-K Counts is a state-funded, full-day pre-kindergarten program for ages 3 through 5.  It helps to prepare children for kindergarten and beyond, which sets them up better for life!​

Pre-K Counts is free for income-eligible households. For more information on Pre-K Counts and what it's about, click here.  For information about openings, contact Kelly (info below).

Wrap Care:
Wrap care options may be available for enrolled preschool or Pre-K Counts students.  Wrap care provides time before and/or after the preschool programming for the student to stay at the Center.  Once enrolled, this option will be offered as available.
