About the Provider

Description: Preschool of America is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment for young children. We provide enriching opportunities every day so students reach their full potential socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively within the learning environment.

The play-based curriculum focuses on literacy, math, science, social and emotional skills, and physical development. Classrooms are designed to inspire young learners, capturing each child’s interests, ideas, and independence to encourage a growing awareness of self. We prepare students for on-going schools by continually monitoring their readiness for new learning challenges.

We believe that the strength of the program is in the dedication of the teaching staff. Teachers create a kind, caring atmosphere to foster imagination and creativity. We strive to create mutual respect and encourage daily communication between parents, teachers, and administrators. We believe parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life; therefore, our doors are open to parents at all times.

Preschool of America is an organization that values people: the children in our care, their parents, and our employees. We continually work to earn the trust placed in us and strive each day to be the best providers of early childhood education in the community we serve.
