Our Programs

Our Preschool Program (3-5 years) is run under the direction of Brenda Di Gregorio. Parents and Tots (18-36 months) is led by Kim Hammons.  Both are experienced, certified teachers. Parents participate by engaging in art, cooking, and imaginative play activities. Parents also facilitate snack and story-time tables and are encouraged to participate in the preparations for each school day.

Parents and their children learning together

Parents learn about child growth and development while providing a nursery school learning experience for their children.  Parents participate in the morning program on a rotating basis and attend an evening class one Tuesday of every month.  Preschool classes are small and have a 5:1 ratio of children to adults throughout the year.
