Program background

Preschool / Pre-K

Childcare Preschool / Pre-K

The program offers a high-quality early learning environment to promote cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development for children ages 2-5.

We respect parents as the primary and most important provider of care and nurturing, and we believe parents and teachers are partners in a child’s care and education. Each child’s day will be filled with opportunities to create, explore, and learn problem-solving and personal interaction skills while developing a positive self-concept through both self- and teacher-directed activities. The Program is designed to meet the developmental needs of young children by providing an enriching experience that enhances each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development so that your child will enter Kindergarten ready to learn and succeed in school and beyond.

Our staff serve as positive role models and provide care that is supportive, nurturing, warm, and responsive to each child’s individual needs. We will help put your child’s feelings into words and model behaviors for your child.

For three consecutive years (2017-2020) our Preschool program has been awarded “Mastering High-Quality Standards” by Marin Quality Counts.

Our teachers have created remote learning videos to engage your children on nights and weekends. The videos include a wide range of activities including promoting literacy, storytelling, music, cooking, body in motion activities such as yoga, earth day scavenger hunt, a germ buster experiment, and more!
