Preschool Programs

We have an experienced team of thoughtful, compassionate and creative teachers who love working with children. They encourge children to explore their world around them and follow their natural curiosity. Every day, our teachers work to create safe and respectful learning environments where each child can grow and flourish. The children are respected for their unique personalities, cultures and developmental milestones and pathways.

Our Junior Kids Krew program is a full-day year-round preschool child care program open to children ages 3 and 4. Care is available from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. A child may stay with us for a maximum of 10 hours. There are two separate registrations periods; one for school-year and one for summer months. 

Our Preschool learning program is for children age 3 years old by August 31, 2023. This program operates Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30-12:30. This is a school-year program operating September to June. 

Our Kindergarten Readiness learning program is for children entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2023 and are 4 years old by August 31, 2023. This program operates Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30-12:30. This is a school-year program operating September to June.  

All three of these programs are designed for the preschool-age child. These children most often have the ability to follow simple directions and cooperate with others. They are learning and growing their social skills and it is our job to help them along. These children generally display an eagerness and curiosity in learning and wanting to play with others. They should have independent bathroom skills and should also have the ability to separate from their parents/guardians at morning drop-off time. Children eligible for Kindergarten in the fall cannot be accepted into these programs.
