  Our Morning Program
We offer a flexible, child-directed program that includes a wide variety of activities and materials. For example: painting, collage, playdough, dramatic play center, blocks, table toys, games, puzzles, science, sensory, music, language, etc. The curriculum also includes teacher-directed structured activities, like circle and story time. Throughout the year, we plan various special events to further enrich our program.

Our Afternoon Program
The JK Readiness program offers a larger teacher directed component than the preschool morning program. Children will be involved with a wide variety of activities and materials, like previously listed under the morning program description, however, each child will be required to complete the assigned task of the day and print his/her name, to an age appropriate level. We are introducing alphabet phonics; each week will feature a letter that is accompanied by a song, an action, and an activity to support recognition of the letter sound. There will be a focus on scissor skills. Children may still choose activities of their liking as well, as we believe that child-directed play is a fundamental part of learning. The goal of our afternoon program is to act as a head start for a child in their pre-JK year.
