PREPARING YOUR CHILD FOR KINDERGARTEN

Preschoolers learn best through a hands-on approach. Our staff plans activities that encourage exploration and discovery to engage children in active learning. Social relationships become more complex at this age, so our staff models and supports cooperative play and social problem-solving skills with the children.
