Our Programs!

Toddlers: 2, 3, or 5 day programs

The emphasis of the Toddler Program is to teach children to pay with each other, share and get along in a classroom situation.  They learn to follow directions and listen.  The children participate in art projects, paint, cook, play with blocks and clay.  They sing and dance and generally have FUN!

Nursery: 3 or 5 day programs

The three-year-old children have lessons in shapes, colors, numbers, seasons and holidays.  They do simple science experiments and participate in art, music, and gym

Pre-Kindergarten: 5 day programs

This program is designed for children entering kindergarten the following fall.  In order to be prepared, reading readiness activities such as patterns, opposites, rhyming and same and different will be presented.  We work on our numbers, cook our way through the alphabet, travel around the world and present a Thanksgiving play.  Most of all we have FUN!
