Our preschool program for 3-5 year olds help young learners develop their emergent literacy and math skills through a play-based learning model. Since preschool is also a time when children begin to develop friendships, we also provide opportunities to help them develop healthy social skills and learn to advocate appropriately for their needs.
Parent Education's goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and caregivers to provide the best possible environment for their child's learning and growth. It is a place where all families have people who will walk beside them on their parenting journey.
