Using themes to introduce and expose students to colors, shapes, numbers, and letters through a friendly, fun atmosphere. A balance of whole group and small group activities encourage academic and listening skills along with social interaction. Activities are designed to promote each child’s self- esteem and positive attitude toward learning, while striving to introduce independence and responsibility.  All children need to be toilet trained to enroll/participate except for Finally 3.
