Our Child Development Centers offer a nurturing, creative environment for your child with age appropriate activities built into each program. The full-day/part-day preschool and full-day/part-day Pre-Kindergarten programs are designed to enhance your child’s personal growth and ensure that he or she is well prepared for Kindergarten. Preschool is reserved for our three-year-olds. Pre-Kindergarten is geared toward ages four and five. To participate in Pre-K, the child must reach age four by 1 October. Otherwise, he or she will be enrolled in the Preschool Program. Our highly trained, professional and caring staff is always ready to answer questions about ways to help your child open the Window to a World of Opportunity!
