Our Young Pre classroom is for ages 5+. This age group is working on developing their fine and gross motor skills, that are gaining independence, and developing their social skills through play.

Growth and development

The homelike quality of our school contributes to a relaxed, focused experience for the child. Our indoor classroom activities are placed on open shelves for selection as interest and readiness inspires the child. Our outdoor environment offers a beautiful developed playground with manipulatives, tricycles, pets, and gardens.
