About the Provider

Description: The preschool program is designed to promote emotional, social, intellectual and physical growth for all of our children. Our school’s well-balanced programs meet the needs of the children according to their age and development. Every child is special and is treated as an individual. Children learn in our multi-cultural environment. We firmly believe in the value of “Play is a Child’s Work.” Through play, children can learn cooperation, social and conversational skills, creative thinking and decision-making. Our school provides a safe, secure environment for children to explore new ideas, make new friends and learn to love school. Our enthusiastic teachers allow each child to progress at his/her own pace through their encouraging and creative lessons. We are advocates for all children and strive to provide the best educational program for your child.
