Your Child Learns All The Skills They Need For Kindergarten
The pre-kindergarten program fully prepares your child to shine in Kindergarten. Using our newest curriculum Streamin 3, we tailor lesson plans to your child. They will learn all the skills they need in Kindergarten, such as problem-solving and following directions. Fun is still on the menu with exciting, hands-on group activities that completely immerse your child in the experience of learning.
A Bilingual Learning Environment Spells Future Success
Learning two languages has many advantages for your child’s future success, such as increased cognitive development and academic achievement, improved memory, and better-paying jobs in their future. We ensure bilingualism and integrate Spanish into our everyday activities, along with specialized weekly Spanish lessons. Getting your child off to a bright start with bilingualism is a part of what we do well.
STEAM Promotes Critical and Creative Thinking and Problem-Solving Skills
Science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) is a curriculum that is essential for early education today. Using our Streamin 3 lesson plans, pre-K kids will participate in two monthly projects that will provide them with a first introduction to STEAM concepts. These educational elements give your child an advantage as they kick off Kindergarten and move through their academic career.

"The level of comfort didn't decline after our first interaction but actually increased ..."
The level of comfort didn't decline after our first interaction but actually increased as we noticed the level of care and attention that was and has been dedicated to our child on a consistent basis. Each classroom has a variety of teachers and staff that assist throughout the day and from my perspective the care and concern that is shown for the children at this facility does not fall short. Although each individual room has their primary caregivers it is not uncommon for the other members of the staff to say hello or goodbye to her by name. The facility also has a rather open feeling where most of the walls are low and visibility throughout the building allows you to easily see into each area.

"There is an amazing atmosphere and a surreal amount of love in the building."
It's really hard letting your children go, terrifying actually. My son began here and like every other parent I was skeptical, but soon realized my fear was for nothing. The staff is amazing, and they treat the kids like family. There is an amazing atmosphere and a surreal amount of love in the building. Highly recommend it.
