The Curriculum Reflects Our Values

We have developed a curriculum that meets state licensing requirements and offers a high degree of flexibility. In keeping with our philosophy of an all-inclusive approach to early childhood education, curriculum components are age-specific and can be adjusted to meet the needs of children at varying stages of development.

The preschool curriculum is designed for toddlers and includes arts and crafts (to hone fine and gross motor skills), indoor and outdoor play groups, sensory/cognitive exercises and more.
