We begin nurturing children in preschool at the age of two and a half. The students experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities during the day. Each activity is designed to allow children to explore and experience their environment. Learning social skills and developing independence are important components to development at these ages. Consideration is given to the individual child in an attempt to meet their needs in a loving and supportive atmosphere of learning.
Weekly enrichment classes include music and campus library visitation.
