Preschool/Primer

Our Preschool and Primer Programs are a place to keep children actively engaged in learning.  Our daily activities provide opportunities for children to explore, imagine, investigate and engage in real-world situations.  We want to encourage your child to develop a sense of independence and self-confidence.  Our goal is to assist in nurturing your child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth through play; a child’s most important work.
