Creative Kids Preschool

The Creative Kids Preschool program provides age-appropriate curriculum to develop a child’s love of learning. Our curriculum is provided in a safe, nurturing environment which allows the children opportunities to grow socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. Children participate in a variety of activities everyday including art, math, science, story time and group learning which are designed so that students can find their own successes. Our curriculum incorporates Jolly Phonics, STEM and Handwriting Without Tears. We strive to prepare children for kindergarten and our program is designed to give your child the tools and experiences they need to assure a positive transition.

Some ongoing skills emphasized throughout our two-year program are recognition and printing of first and last names with upper and lower case letters, naming basic colors and shapes, reciting numbers 1-20, count by 2’s. 5’s and 10’s, letter recognition, number recognition, sounds, sight words calendar and weather.

Our teachers help the children learn good work habits, follow directions, socialize, share and establish self-direction.
