Our weekly learning themes encourage preschoolers to be creative by imagining, designing, implementing, and improving on their own ideas while also collaborating with preschool friends.

  • Learning Centers
    Daily opportunities to participate in developmentally-appropriate activities that help children learn new skills or practice existing skills in a fun, engaging, and supportive learning environment.
  • Creative Arts
    Preschoolers explore their environment by moving, touching, and experimenting with different types of materials to express ideas.
  • Imaginative Play
    Preschoolers have a chance to collaborate and role-play while learning social skills and cultural awareness. They practice turn-taking, negotiation, and sharing ideas, backgrounds, and experiences within their play.
  • Interactive Read Aloud
    Purposeful and planned story time encourages preschoolers to actively take part in by asking and answering questions and making predictions.

    Preschoolers are inspired to become problem solvers as they explore, investigate, make observations, and join in open-ended creative experiences in science, technology, engineering, art, and math.
