In our community, every Private Pre-K child is seen as a capable and competent member. We cultivate an atmosphere of respect, tolerance, and acceptance, nurturing personal growth. Through observation and interactions, we guide them to embrace both successes and failures, building communication and negotiation skills from an early age.
Our dedicated teachers, caring and committed, ensure a safe and loving environment for our students. Thematic focus in the curriculum provides myriad opportunities for exploration, information absorption, and holistic growth—physically and mentally.
Parents play an integral role, staying connected throughout the day via our secure Brightwheel App. Regular updates, pictures, and videos provide glimpses into their child’s experiences, affirming that they are in a loving, caring, and supportive environment.
As part of our commitment to well-being, two healthy and nutritious meals, along with two snacks, are included in the cost of tuition. Our monthly menu, available online and shared at the beginning of each month, ensures transparency. Private Pre-K students enjoy meals family-style with friends, fostering social interactions.
