A quality preschool must provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are actively engaged in learning. Young children need a variety of opportunities to look, touch, hear and move if they are to learn. Three, four and five-year-old children use play as a way to discover and master themselves and their world. Our classrooms are divided into learning centers. These allow children to make choices, to move freely and independently, to explore, and to experiment.
