Our Transitions program, led by Ms. Debbie, a master level teacher, prepares children for the transition from home to school through a 3 stage gradual separation process. Under the guidance of our nurturing teachers, along with their caregivers, children prepare for pre-school through exploration of manipulatives, creative movement and play, art and crafts, snack, story and song.

Our 3-year-old program offers our preschoolers an age appropriate curriculum where children are actively engaged in activities suitable to their age and level of development. Kids explore and learn through a wide variety of materials, build their coordination and motor skills on our indoor and outdoor playground equipment, and develop a foundation for basic concepts and school routines.
5 Day: Monday-Friday 9:00-2:00
Our Universal Pre-K Program centers on a developmentally appropriate approach to learning as our 4 year olds practice the skills they will need in Kindergarten as well as ease the transition to elementary school. Our Pre-K teachers are NYS Certified and have significant experience working in Early Childhood Education. Our curriculum is built around the children’s interests and thoughtfully planned by our master teachers to meet criteria in Pre-K Common Core Standards while keeping the children actively engaged in meaningful learning experiences.
