Preschool and Kindergarten Readiness

The most important goals of our preschool curriculum are for children to get along well with others and to become enthusiastic learners ready to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. We want children to become independent, self-confident, curious learners who can work well with others. We’re teaching them how to learn, not just in preschool, but throughout their lives. We do this by creating purposeful and productive experiences that help children grow in all areas.
