National studies show that one-third of all children starting
kindergarten arrives unprepared. While knowing some numbers
and letters is good, it is simply the tip of the iceberg when it
comes to preparing a child for his/her school career. Beginning
kindergartens, for example, are expected to perform tasks
involving self-care, fine and gross motor movements,
appropriate listening and conversational skills, and cooperative
interaction with peers and adults.

Our curriculum is organized to incorporate language, math
science, creative arts, music, motor skills and social development.                       
Our classroom learning centers have developmentally appropriate
materials. For example, our science learning center has plants,
magnets, shells, rocks, and mirrors which allow your child to
engage in active exploration of nature and science. We also
provide the child with daily outdoor activities which includes
nature walks. We have a large fenced-in playground
