The Dragonfly and Firefly classrooms are designed for active and curious three and four year olds. The majority of their day is center time where exploration, pretend play, language development and motor skills, independence, and social skills are encouraged. Teachers work with small groups on number/color/shape recognition, crafts, cutting, and beginning writing skills.

Contact with local kindergarten educators assures that children are provided opportunities to support future kindergarten success. Teachers ensure an enjoyable preschool experience while simultaneously stressing academics. Center time is still an important part of the day. Field trips and hands-on activities supplement the curriculum. Parents are provided with an assessment of their child’s growth during a scheduled conference in April.
