Our Early Childhood Education Department offers traditional
half-day preschool for three and four year-olds. Our structured environment provides hands-on experiences that enhance your child's cognitive, physical, social and emotional growth. We meet each child developmentally and move forward. We instill a love of learning and a strong sense of self-confidence in each child.

Class Routines
  • Circle Time - calendar activities, weather, large group games, and many literacy activities including stories, poems, songs and finger plays.

  • Centers - small groups rotate through different activities. Centers are socialization-based: sand table, block area, housekeeping area, and others are academic-based: math, writing, phonics, and fine motor development.

  • Gross Motor Play - students go outside as often as the weather permits.

  • Snack Time - parents are responsible for providing a nutritionally sound snack for the class on a rotating basis. 

Our preschool programs are open to children that will be three or four years of age by December 1, 2022 and must be potty trained.
