Preschool Program
Starting at 2.9 years old
Our Preschool program serves students beginning at 2.9 years old.  This half-day, play-based program provides opportunities for academic exploration and discovery. Our primary academic program goes from 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM each day, with a rolling drop off time that begins as early as 7:30 AM. Families can enroll for two, three, or five mornings for the year.

Our Preschool class is full of energy, excitement, and discovery. We inspire students to learn, while providing the patience and individualized instruction necessary for each child to grow and develop at his or her own pace.


Each day from 11:30 AM - 2:45 PM, students can also participate in our "Discovery Afternoons."  Each afternoon will provide our preschool students with the chance to explore a new area of learning. Students can attend "Discovery Afternoons" each day they are enrolled in the morning program, but cannot attend an afternoon when they are not enrolled in that morning.  Preschool students are also eligible for our after school program that runs from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM. The cost of the after school program is not covered in tuition.
