Our preschool program can help prepare your child for success in school-and in life. New research on the brain and
on learning shows how important the early years are in a child's learning and development. What happens in
preschool matters a lot. And what you do at home is even more important.
The purpose of this area of our website is to explain our curriculum and how we can work together-at home and at
school--to help your child acquire the skills, attitudes, and habits to do well in school and throughout life.
Parent's ask, "What is my child actually learning in preschool? And what can I do at home to help?" A Parent's
Guide to Preschool answers these questions.
Working together, we can give your child the best start for school.
