The Best in Child Care, Infant Care, and Early Education
About Our Preschool and Pre-K Programs

Our preschool program inspires your child to examine, create, and share as he broadens his language through interactions with teachers and classmates in a safe, nurturing environment. Sensory and repetitive activities transform these new experiences into knowledge.

Three year and four year olds want to be independent. They want to explore, touch and mimic their peers and teachers. We use a core standards based curriculum that integrates language arts and literacy, mathematics, science, social and emotional development and gross and fine motor development.

Through learning centers and age-appropriate playgrounds, our preschoolers have the ability to work at their own pace and learn to do tasks independently.

Your Preschooler’s Day

We have six units in our curriculum and all activities are tied to specific learning objectives. The typical daily structure for your preschooler might include:

 

Morning and Afternoon Circle time where the day’s themed activities are introduced and reviewed.

Activities in the Learning Centers to bring the day’s educational theme to life.

Math, Language, Literacy & Science activities tied to core standards to progressively build important foundational skills.

Music and movement (songs, poems and rhymes) to expand your child’s vocabulary and listening skills.

Outdoor play at least twice daily to burn off energy and develop motor skills.

Lunch and quiet time to nourish and rest your preschooler’s growing mind and body.

In addition, our fun summer camp program offers three months of learning, fun and sun—filled with exciting themes and activities that reinforce learning objectives and further school-readiness.

During the summer, we expand learning through visits from the Denver Zoo, The Butterfly Pavilion, and the Botanic Gardens. These carefully planned extension activities are incorporated into our own curriculum and give our preschoolers a chance to interact with their natural world.
