Preschool-aged programs

Helping your child thrive

Our preschool-aged programs follow the HighScope concept; an active learning approach to educating young children that has proven to enhance development. Children are provided with a wide range of materials to expand their learning. The Early Childhood Educators plan experiences for children that encourage independent thinking, initiative and creativity.

Our fees are based on how much time your child is in the program.

“Staff were very friendly, helpful and flexible. Everyone has been excellent and professional.”

“It feels like a small community where everyone knows one another. Everyone is always friendly and it’s obvious they care about our children. I love the high scope approach.”
