In our pre-kindergarten, we encourage a joy of learning, creativity, initiative, and a sense of responsibility. Our goal is for children to develop inner controls, healthy self-esteem, and a love for learning. Art, music, language arts, social studies, math, science, and French are included in the curriculum in ways that encourage each child’s active participation.

Children in our pre-kindergarten begin to explore our Mt. Vernon neighborhood with walks to Mt. Vernon Park for examining the fountains, gardens, statues, and architecture, while looking for signs of the seasons.
