Prekindergarten - Age Three

Young students learn best in a safe and nurturing environment where curiosity and exploration are cultivated. Guided discovery and unstructured play both inside and outside of the classroom provide the teachers with authentic assessments that help guide them to personalize the learning experiences.

Our early childhood learning environment exposes children to a rich, meaningful curriculum of skills, attitudes and knowledge through a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Meaningful opportunities and environment come together to encourage the children to be explorers, investigators and problem solvers. Our program follows a three-year curriculum that provides a balance of teacher guided and child initiated projects. It is based on exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment. Partnerships with families are essential, as we know that children flourish in a supportive environment in which the child, the family, and teachers work together.

The Prekindergarten program is five days a week (M-F) 8:00am-3:00pm.
Extended time care for Early Learning Center students is available from 7:30am to 8:00am and from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.
