Classroom teachers will allow for interactive play throughout the day where children can develop a sense of initiative and begin to feel secure in making decisions. Our preschool curriculum focuses on preparing children for Kindergarten. Children will learn their alphabet and numbers through various teacher-led, student-led, large group, and small group activities.
