To encourage young children to be the best they can be by engaging them in fun, hands-on learning experiences and rich play-based activities.
We provide age-appropriate learning experiences and activities that enable children to successfully develop their social/ emotional, cognitive, and physical skills that are necessary for school as well as for life. Children are engaged in many different ways to give each child an opportunity to discover their talents and individual abilities.
Our goal is to provide high quality early childhood education through the use of the HighScope Preschool Curriculum, which is a reliable, effective and research-based curriculum . The HighScope Curriculum integrates social-emotional learning content with other academic areas and gives children daily opportunities to practice life skills, such as self-regulation and problem-solving .

Toddlers have many opportunities to physically explore their world inside the classroom and on the playground. They also begin more structured activities, such as Learning Centers and Circle Time. Your toddler will begin learning concepts of color and size, and will build their vocabulary.
Our staff understands the challenges that one-year-olds face in a social learning setting, and have experience in helping them adjust to the give and take of the classroom environment.
During this stage of development your child is beginning to gain their independence. Our two year old program expands on the foundations established in the toddler program with more routine and structure to children’s activities and daily schedule. Within your child’s two year old classroom he/she will work on turn taking skills, making friends and developing language. Your child will begin circle time where they will focus on the weather, calendar, counting, ABC’s and singing songs. At this pivotal stage of development we will begin potty training your child.
At this point, we introduce a Spanish-language program. Our daily activities continue to reinforce age-appropriate social development.
Once your child is completely potty training he/she will be entering the three year old classroom. Your child will learn to recognize letters and some letter sounds, writing their name, add two groups of concrete objects by counting and begin to understand the concept of yesterday, today and tomorrow. All activities are designed to stimulate the brain; helping the children learn through their interests.
Skills learned during this period include recognizing letter names, catching a bounced ball and beginning to understand the concept of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Our VPK program is developed with a developmentally appropriate curriculum with a strong emphasis on early literacy skills. The Pre-K program teaches foundational skills derived from the Common Core State Standards. Children learn letter-sound relationships, sight word recognition and basic mathematical functions. The Pre-K program also includes character education, physical fitness and Spanish.
Within the VPK school year your child will be introduced to writing, reading, colors, shapes, numbers and much more. All activities are hands on to encourage the students to use their creativity.
