Children will enjoy this program designed to meet their emotional, social, creative and physical needs. Based on the premise that children learn through play, participants will have numerous opportunities to explore, create, discover, problem solve, and communicate to encourage appropriate skills and development.

Caring and nurturing experienced staff members implement a progressive program 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.

All children must be completely toilet trained to participate.
