Our Philosophy


Our Arizona state licensed preschool program provides many opportunities for children to discover, learn and explore. The PreK learning environment uses a progressive theme-model and literacy-based curriculum including story time, art, creative social play, music/movement, small and large motor skill development, and alpha numeric concepts. Our program offers 1:6 student to teacher ratios, a morning class for 3 years of age and morning and afternoon classes for children 4 and 5 years of age.

Our Program
