Our Preschool aged children are divided up into four classes by age. Our aims in these classes are to create a loving and safe environment built around stable routines, positive learning experiences, and consistent consequences. We create a space which is safe in three ways: emotionally safe, prompting feeling identification and developing positive self-respect; physically safe, allowing kids to exercise their muscles and develop fine motor skills through hands-on projects and tasks; and spiritually safe, building a solid understanding that of God’s love.
For this age, we strive to develop a positive associations with a learning environment. We’ll start laying the foundation for and a familiarity with numbers and letters, as well as a basic understanding of ideas such as matching and building, while continuing to encourage language skills and emotional self-awareness. Our environments encourage self-respect and respect for others from an early age.
We offer year-round enrollment. Flexible and drop-in schedules available. See our Current Rates page.
