Early Childhood/Pre-K students

Early Childhood/Pre-K

Preschool promotes new discoveries, deeper exploration, and expanded learning with a longer school day. In addition to the special classes, your child will have additional time for theme study through independent and group work, expanded learning centers and other physical development opportunities. Differentiated learning activities are continued to meet the needs of individual learners.
