My Students

The students in our Preschool are known for their big personalities and big emotions. Imagination and creativity flows through the room as children act on their inner/future engineer, architect, computer techs and a drummer in a rock band skills.

Strong imaginations and confident leaders help make everyday different, challenging and fun.

During large group or our weekly class meeting, future musicians, future lawyers, doctors, politicians and motivational speakers are not afraid to express their feelings creativity and ‘speak their peace’.

My Project

Developing literacy skills in young children is important; the ability to read is their connection to society and one of the first steps to an amazing future. Reading with children from an early age helps them develop a solid foundation for literacy. Books provide preschoolers the simplest, most effective, and inexpensive way to promote language and literacy growth.

Literacy lays the foundation for a child's success in school and in life.

Studies have shown that reading to a child and having books accessible are important indicators of future success. In preschool, children’s emergent literacy abilities develop; these skills are the foundation for children’s later reading and academic abilities.
