PRESCHOOL

Preschool 2's & 3's

Our Preschool program is a separation enrichment program that serves as the first step of your child’s journey into early childhood education. Targeted to children of age 2-4, the program follows the NJ state approved curriculum, and provides children a window of colorful adventures with a variety of activities including Arts/Literacy, Math, Science, Creative Arts, Music and Movement socialization. Each day, we have designed activities to help children increase their independence as they are not only introduced to beginning letter sounds and math concepts but also to basic self-help tasks, all designed to help prepare children for school routines, individual and cooperative learning, and eventual entrance into a preschool program.
