​Butterflies: 3 years - 6 years

The Preschool Classroom is a dynamic, sensory-rich learning environment.  Children develop confidence to ask questions and make friends as they construct knowledge exploring the world with all five senses.

The Butterflies Program offers children the opportunity to be intellectually engaged and challenged in a learning environment that encourages creativity and social interaction. This class enjoys dance and music enrichment, explores the neighborhood through walking field trips, and ventures out into exciting field trips traveling on public transportation to places such as Adventure Playground and Habitot. 

 

An end-of-spring ceremony celebrates our children moving on to the exciting world of Kindergarten.
