4 and 5 Year Old Preschool

Program Overview

Our focus with our four and five year old preschool classes is to continue fostering healthy social and emotional development. Continuing to work on fine motor skills, we add letters, numbers, and name writing. Through play, and developmentally appropriate practices, we add in more academics to your child’s experience.
