What Makes Our School Unique

We also offer Ms. Donna’s Dance school, Amazing Athletes, Soccer Shots, Mrs. Mandy’s music class, Karate class, and Tumble Bugs as extra-curricular activities. Your children’s participation in these programs will free up valuable “family time” for you at home.

Our preschool has several family events though out the year like summer fest, ice cream socials, and parents’ night out.
