Our preschool learning fosters respect and nurturing while challenging and engaging our children.

It’s important that our classrooms foster pleasant relationships both with the children and adults. Interaction and engagement is at the core of it and there is an ongoing dialogue — there are no long periods of being ignored, awaiting instruction, or solitude. When children come to preschool it’s something they look forward to.

Our preschool provides ongoing opportunities to develop both academically and socio-emotionally.  

New skills and knowledge are always cultivated at our preschool. When you come and visit, you’ll always notice a bustling classroom where projects, conversation, reading, and experiments are at the forefront. Because we cater and specialize in the DC Common Core Early Learning Standards, the curriculum and materials we incorporate and both challenging and individualized to stir academic development.

We know how active kids are so we try and avoid long periods of sitting, and ensure that the activities are engaging so kids aren’t left just wandering about.

Preschoolers are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills to make decisions on their own — they can choose between activities, decide what to create, and develop their curiosities with the exciting new peers they interact with.

Diversity is celebrated!

A preschooler’s background including their language, traditions, and culture are celebrated and encouraged to be explored in our classroom. Often times, our teachers support their curriculum with lessons dedicated to teaching diversity.

A day of preschool hums with different activities.

It’s important that a child gets the feel for both small-group and large-group activities because it’s vital for them to learn how to interact socially with the whole group and how to regulate themselves when asked to work alone — self-regulation is fostered in both the small and large group environments.

Our preschool prepares them for their future in the public school system.

There are many skills preschoolers need to foster to be successful in the public school system, and that is exactly what our curriculum is geared towards. From reading and writing, numbers and shapes, vocabulary, math and science, etc, we support your child and set them up for future successes.

Our preschool program is paving the way for early education success in the DC area!
