Monday through Friday


*Children must turn 5 by February 10th

About The Program 


     Our goal is to prepare each child for their upcoming Kindergarten year. Social development as well as cognitive, physical and language skills are areas we focus on everyday. We use the Kindergarten curriculum from the Garnet Valley School District as a guide for us when we are planning the school year. This gives the children a stepping stone into what they will be learning and seeing the following year. Did you know that by the age of 5, parents have 680 weeks until their child turns 18?! that is why we believe that what happens now matters ALOT! Five year olds are in the phase where unfiltered words make you laugh and life becomes a stage where your kid shouts "look at me!" Five year olds think like a scientist and want to see how things are working. They learn best through concrete evidence. Our goal is to improve their abilities by engaging them in hands on activities that allow their interest to thrive in ways that capture their wonder and excitement they have for learning.
