Our Preschool Programs

  • Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). Our caregivers work closely with you to create an infant daycare schedule that fits your needs and allows you to participate in your baby’s development.
  • Toddler Daycare (ages 1 to 2). In this daycare program, toddlers explore the world through our theme-based curriculum that encourages play, language, and discovery.
  • Early Learners (ages 2 to 3). Our knowledgeable preschool teachers foster early learning skills through activities like crafting, painting, playing, rhyming and counting, all geared toward creativity, agility, and increasing awareness in our Early Learners program.
  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4). Children start to build on prior areas of development in this preschool program as we expose them to new areas of learning, including math, science, and social studies.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5). Our Pre-K program expands your child’s literacy, vocabulary, math, problem-solving and motor skills in preparation for Kindergarten.
  • Before and After School Care (ages 5 to 12). As part of our before and after school care, we ensure your child receives homework help, spends time studying for tests, and enjoys social time in a safe, fun environment.
