Play is such an important part of a child's development. We utilize meaningful and active play in our curriculum. Our social-based preschool uses play to advance a child's emotional, cognitive and social development.

Children learn through various play activities that help prepare them for the academics to come. We also focus on letters, numbers, large and fine motor skills and kindergarten preparation.
