Full-Day Preschool

Our full-day preschool program is tuition-based and provides an excellent social and pre-academic experience for children ages 3-5 year old. 

Classrooms are composed of communities of learners with a range of abilities and gifts and learning and instruction is individualized as children progress at their own rate.   The classroom family has a maximum of 18 children, a certified teacher and two paraprofessionals. The multi-aged classroom creates a learning environment where younger children are nurtured by older children and benefit from collaborative learning while older children show increased levels of confidence and leadership.

  • Before (starts at 7:00 a.m.) and after care (ends at 5:30 p.m.) is available for an additional cost.
