Clovers (33 months-5 years)

We offer a preschool curriculum 5 days a week for children 33 months to 5 years old. To be enrolled in preschool children do not have to attend all 5 days. Our preschool program is unique, parents can choose a preschool schedule that fits their needs.

Each day we will review what we learned the day/week before and build on what we have learned. We feel this will allow the children to gain more experience learning and mastering their new preschool skills throughout the day.
