“New Discoveries” is our exclusive preschool program. Children in the program are working on building language and mathematical concepts, along with physical/health and social/emotional concepts. We work on building our character, self-esteem, self-care and personal responsibilities as well as academics. Our intention is that your child will develop a positive attitude toward learning, self and others, which will allow them to be successful throughout their academic school career and beyond. “New Discoveries” is for children that are 4 by September 1st.
