Our Preschool program is the gateway to a child’s elementary education. We utilize the
Doors to Discovery and the DLM Express curriculum both approved by the State of

which we perfected through the last 20 years.

Character Education is just as important for children to learn as academics. Our
Character Education curriculum consists of the following monthly themes: Citizenship,
Compassion, Fairness, Honesty, Integrity and Trustworthiness, Perseverance,
Responsibility, Respect and Self-Discipline. The Character Education program is designed
to inspire our students to become well-educated, responsible citizen.
The children will learn autonomy and social skills, reading and storytelling,
mathematical reasoning, movement, work habits, emerging literacy, scientific reasoning,
music and art, phonological awareness and orientation and time and space. Each of our
classrooms has its own name. The preschool classrooms are the Tigers, Elephants,
Giraffes, Jaguars, Geckos and Frogs. A child’s age, developmental level and the teaching
style they will most respond to will determine their classroom placement.
When you enroll you will be given a questionnaire to complete. The information you
provide will better help us understand your child’s learning style and level.

challenges your children so that they are offered all opportunities to learn as much as their
minds can absorb while loving to learn.
