A Note For Pre-School Teachers
The length and content of our programs are not suited for Pre-Kindergarten classes. We believe these young children learn best when given the opportunity to have playful interactions with objects and people. These interactions should occur in an environment that is meaningful in the context of the child’s development and experience. We encourage you to wait.
