Half Day State Pre-School Programs

  • Our Half Day Preschool Program adheres to the philosophy that children learn best when they are involved as initiators and active participants in their own learning. In the program, children are provided an environment that is nurturing, physically, and emotionally safe. Our preschools promote exploration and experimentation for all children while focusing social-emotional development and kindergarten readiness.
