Enriching & Fun Curriculum

Sunshine & Fresh Air

Kids have fun climbing, swinging, and sliding in the school's enclosed play yard. Both structured and unstructured play helps kids learn important social skills.

Our program meets and exceeds public school curriculum, so our children are well prepared when they graduate from preschool. Your child's development is our top priority. We hold formal conferences biannually, but we encourage you to stop by anytime to discuss your child's growth.

Reading Readiness

Experience with early childhood literature develops cognitive skills and encourages imagination. An auditory introduction to Greek enhances listening skills.

Arts & Crafts

Using drawing and finger-painting as well as sand, Play-doh, and water play, kids express and develop their creativity.

Computer Basics

Children learn shapes, colors, and the alphabet while strengthening fine motor skills.

Music, Dance & Creative Expression

Kids express themselves through movement and music, which also offers developmental benefits by reinforcing academic concepts and fostering logical thinking.

Math & Science Concepts

At multiple discovery stations, kids engage in hands-on exploration of the fundamentals through measuring, coooking, and studying nature.

Introduction to Religion

Kids feel supported and encouraged as they learn the building blocks of the Orthodox faith and celebrate major holidays.

Healthy Snacks & Lunch

We provide healthy foods for kids to enjoy with their friends and teachers. We are an allergy-aware preschool, so please let us know your child's needs and preferences. We are glad to accommodate for food allergies and sensitivities.
