Students must be 2 years old by August 1st of the current academic year.

In the toddler room, we focus on social interactions which include learning how to separate from caregivers, playing appropriately with peers, and eating on our own.  We also work alongside our families on students becoming more independent and potty training as the child is ready.



Students must be 3 years old by August 1st of the current academic year and completely potty-trained.

In the Pre-K 3’s room, we focus on transitioning from social play learning to school readiness.  This class offers an introduction to letters, numbers and focuses on skills such as cutting, coloring, gluing and continued positive social interactions with peers.  This is done with lots of play and whole group learning.


Students must be 4 years old by August 1st of the current academic year and completely potty-trained.


In the Pre-K 4’s room, we focus on school readiness and work more in depth on letters, numbers and writing skills.  The main focus is still playing and having positive peer interactions but moving towards longer periods of work time and more consistent recognition and use of pre-reading and math skills.
