Preschool Program

Preschool Program

Our Preschool Program is designed to foster social growth and lots of exploration.  Challenge is shared between students and teachers to encourage motivation and introduce a commitment to learning.  An extensively themed environment is created to provide many opportunities for observation, research and self expression. The Preschool Program offers an inspiring atmosphere for both growing and learning.

This program ensures an abundance of materials and equipment, available to children for not only academic purposes, but also for social, emotional and cognitive growth.  In addition, the regular movement enhances a child’s skills for adaptation.  It is through this developmental stage that strong bonds with friends form and learning to understand the needs of others begins to emerge.
