Preschool Program

Preschool Classes Overview-

As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they feel ready to take on the world. Our program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and develop a love of lifelong learning.

Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children develop a variety of skills and knowledge in areas like early literacy, mathematics, science, art and social skills.


Our Preschool Program Features

  • Themed units that encourage your child’s curiosity, increase confidence, and support self-directed activities
  • Hands-on experiences designed to boost problem solving and scientific thinking skills
  • Daily small- and whole-group activities
  • Regular cooking activity’s as well as taking care and harvesting our garden

Communicating with OthersWe guide your child in developing communication skills.

We use a language-rich environment to encourage children’s development of early literacy skills through activities like daily read-aloud of high-quality children’s literature to promote a love of reading, journal experiences that give your child the ability to practice writing letters and words, and multiple opportunities to identify and use letters and words to expand their vocabulary and practice their developing abilities to communicate.

Building Brain PowerWe help your child gain higher-level thinking skills.

We encourage the exploration of the physical properties of materials; use daily calendar activities to teach about sequence of events, patterns, and routines; and support the learning of cognitive skills such as counting, making predictions, testing, and drawing conclusions.

Making New FriendsWe coach your child in developing strong relationships.

We model social concepts such as “please” and “thank you,” have daily classroom conversations and community-building discussions, explore similarities and differences between children, and encourage cooperation with other children.

Growing a Healthy BodyWe help your child refine motor skills.

We use lacing cards, stencils, and writing activities to enhance fine-motor skills; strengthen coordination and gross-motor skills through running, jumping, and throwing activities, offer healthful food choices for snacks and meals, and encourage learning about the ways our bodies respond to the exercise and nutrition we take in.

Nurturing CreativityWe inspire your child to explore creative ideas and talents.

We encourage children to express themselves through creative arts and provide daily opportunities for children to paint, move, and sing, tell stories with puppets, and build and play in dramatic scenes.

Developing Lasting Life SkillsWe develop real-time problem-solving skills.

We support the application of knowledge in new ways. We encourage curiosity and choice, provide children the opportunity to problem-solve, demonstrate flexibility (in thinking) and use daily routines to promote memory.

Hello Staff,

My name is Arielle Carroll and I am looking for a great pre school for my 3 year old son.
I was referred to your center by Arica Villegas. I was wondering how I can schedule a tour of your facility and to get more information about your center?

Thank you,

Arielle C

    Hi Arielle,

    How awesome that you know that family! We loved having their munchkin here. Unfortunately, we do not have any room in any of our classes at this time. We are so full, we aren’t even doing tours at the moment. I would recommend coming in for Open House on September 19th from 6:00-7:00 pm. Then you could check out our facility and see if you jive with our center vibe. If you do, you can put yourself on our wait list, but if you decided not to come in, we will start doing tours again in January. If you have any more questions, please feel free to give us a call at 619-463-5126 or e-mail us at [email protected].

    Hope you have a great day!

    Hi Michelle,
    I can look and see if we have any openings, but I do believe we are full. You are welcome to come in for a tour, check out our center, and if you jive with our vibe, you are welcome to leave your name on our Wait-list. We could potentially have openings in January when we lose students to EAK.
