Our curriculum is based on the NAEYC guidelines and features a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities to accomplish these goals.

Does my child have to be potty trained?
Does my child have to be potty trained? Yes. A child may not be registered if they require a diaper. If you have any questions about whether or not your child is ready, feel free to give us a call. We even have a “How To Potty Train” your child strategy. It’s helped many moms quickly potty train their kids. We’re here to help! ***Toddler Time students are not required to be potty trained.

COVID-19 Precautions: CDC Guidelines
Precautions we are taking to promote everyone's safety while providing kids with much needed socialization include:
Touch free check-in and check out.
Pre-screening requirements for parents before arriving to school.
Visual screening by school staff upon arrival & verification of home screening.
Touchless thermometer on hand during school.
School toys and materials are cleaned and sanitized between classes and after school.
Hand washing upon arrival and before dismissal, in addition to all the regular times in between.
Hygiene lessons and practice daily at circle time.
Small class sizes, only two classes with no more than 24 kids in the school during the day.
A note about masks:
We are blessed to be a small facility. We get the best of both worlds; a cozy, home-like environment and a beautiful commercial building. We don't have hundreds of kids on site like daycares or elementary schools. Students may wear a mask to school (this is left to parent discretion). Staff will wear a covering at pick up and drop off if we need to approach a parent closer than 6 feet. We are extra diligent in cleanliness, hand washing, keeping a watchful eye for signs of illness, and daily sanitizing. Staff is screened daily as well.
Pre-K Daily Schedule
Every day is different, but below is a schedule to get a general idea of all the fun and learning that happens each preschool day.
15 min. – Welcome, Table Time
We are so excited for everyone to arrive! We take off our backpacks and get right to working on fine motor skills such as beading, manipulatives, cutting, gluing, writing our names, playdoh, etc.
25 min. – Opening Circle Time
We gather together at the circle rug to work on our cognitive, social, language, and gross motor skills with our sharing time, calendar, weather, and job helpers. We sing and move our bodies to get our wiggles out before school time with music & movement.
75 min. – Discovery Center Time
We discuss/review the current theme and new or unfamiliar centers around the room. Discovery is often known as “Free Play” or “Play Time.” Our many centers include Dramatic Play, Sensory, Art, Building, Literacy, Writing, Engineering, and Science. We work on social, emotional, and language skills such as using our words, taking turns, being patient, negotiating conflicts, etc. In addition, our teacher brings over small groups or works 1-on-1 with building cognitive skills (colors, shapes, letters, sounds, numbers, counting, etc.) based on each child’s level.
25 min. – Recess
Our playground areas include play structures, swings, slides, a sand table, balls, a garden, and more! You’ll think we’re just playing, but we’re actually working on our social, emotional, language, and gross motor skills as we run, jump, climb, swing, and create games.
20 min. – Snack Time
We love working on our cognitive, social, language, and fine motor skills as we pour, measure, sort, count, chat, and enjoy eating together.
20 min. – Closing Circle
We head back to the circle rug to work on our cognitive skills with story time and Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, social and language skills with discussing what we’ve learned, and emotional skills with getting ready to go home.
