Preschool

We believe that preschool is the place where children are most likely to develop a positive attitude toward school - establishing a connection between their early learning experience and how they will respond to and pursue, future educational endeavours. 

 

In a warm and nurturing environment, 3 year olds are able to reach important developmental milestones. The preschool children will have many exciting opportunities to continue to grow as they refine their fine and gross motor skills, develop their social skills, and expand their vocabulary by way of planned and informal learning experiences.
