We prepare our Pre-K children for a smooth and confident transition to kindergarten by continuing to provide them with the best tools to succeed. Our Pre-K program is run by a New Jersey certified teacher, and a staff that makes learning a magical experience. Children learn physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually by being immersed in our weekly and monthly themes and lessons. Whether they are playing, reading, doing arts and crafts, or in an educational station, the children are encouraged to express themselves. Our curriculum consists of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, music and the arts, Spanish, sign language, computer skills, yoga, and outdoor play. The Pre-K program is on our second floor so children can better focus and have their own "big kid" space.
