Pre-School

2 Day Program 3 year-olds: Typically being the child’s first school experience, the majority of our time is focused on social / emotional development. The child learns how to be part of a group by developing skills in cooperation, sharing and patience. Listening skills, following directions and fine motor skills are also a part of the cognitive learning process in conjunction with the theme of the week.

3 Day Program 4 and 5 year-olds: This program also focuses on the child’s social / emotional development. The child will experience a higher level of cognitive learning within our curriculum. The child will also have more exposure to experiences that will further develop their ability to follow directions, listen attentively, and strengthen their fine and large motor skills.

High Fiver’s Program: 5 yr. olds and older 4 year-olds: This program is designed for the older student who is physically and emotionally ready to experience a 5 day per week session. It will follow the same curriculum as the 3 day program with 2 days of enrichment activities.
