Welcome to our Preschool!

The Early Childhood Center’s preschool program serves children ages two through five, staffed with teachers who truly appreciate the early developmental stages of a child’s life. Our classrooms are designed to include a balance of structured and unstructured activities, including free play, circle time, snack, gross motor play, and story time. Encouraging their natural curiosity, classrooms facilitate hands-on experiential learning, honing children’s fine motor skills and encouraging their natural curiosity. Children enjoy daily music, art, and movement activities, as well as opportunities to work in small groups as we encourage emerging literacy and numeracy.

Parents Association

Our Parents Association (PA) plays an active role in supporting both the life of the classroom and the community. The PA, including the Class Parents, facilitates family participation in the classroom, and supports teachers in organizing classroom visits, field trips, and in class family celebrations. Additionally, the PA shows appreciation for our dedicated teaching staff, organizes parent get-togethers outside of school, and facilitates family gatherings throughout the year.
