Preschool

The Little Eagle Preschool curriculum is designed to stimulate your child’s imagination and creativity.  It will introduce new skills and increase curiosity and understanding of their growing world.  The program will provide learning experiences designed to be fun with a playful approach to acquiring skills which will allow parents and teachers to work as a team to prepare children for kindergarten and life.  Our program is designed to meet each child’s individual needs.  Progress is tracked (not a formal assessment) for each child and shared with parents at the end of the program.

Our program is designed to socially and academically prepare children for kindergarten, while providing a safe, fun, and loving environment.  We dedicate ourselves to providing your child with a wonderful start to their first school experience!
