Preschool

Curriculum

Preschool (3 year olds turning 4)---offering 2,3 or 5 half or full days

Our Preschool uses the Saxon Curriculum, it offers a creative yet developmentally age appropriate approach to learning . It is supplemented by Handwriting Without Tears for the fine motor development of beginning writing skills. We focus on one theme each week, with an academic emphasis on upper case letters, beginning letter sounds, numbers, colors, shapes, pre-reading and math skills.
