PRESCHOOL TOTS: FULL SCHOOL YEAR! Our Preschool program includes developmentally appropriate activities to give your child the skills they need to start Kindergarten. Our curriculum aligns with WI Model Early Learning Standards- WMELS. We focus on health and physical development; social and emotional development; cognition and general knowledge standards through art, music, movement, and creative play.  Our teachers focus on developmentally appropriate fundamentals including identifying letters, numbers, shapes, colors and even some Spanish! Children will experience various field trips and enjoy learning from our community helpers like police and fire fighters.

Guidelines - Parents may leave the premises during class.  All children must be toilet trained and use the bathroom independently and MUST be 3 years old by the first day of class.

PRESCHOOL TOTS GET TO KNOW YOU- We will have an Open House for you and your Preschooler to visit the learning center and meet the teachers.  This will be held Friday, August 31 from 9:30-10:30 a.m.  During this time, you can turn in the required registration forms, as well as let your child explore the room in hopes of familiarizing them with their new learning environment.

Teacher and Tots:
(Formerly Teacher & Me) Children explore their first early childhood education class independently!  Create projects, sing songs, hear stories and play with friends in an interactive learning environment.  This is a great opportunity for young children to experience developmentally appropriate learning activities through art, music, movement, and creative play without a parent or caregiver.

Guidelines - Children must be able to separate from their parent/caregiver during class.  Parent/caregiver needs to remain at the studios and be available during class time.

Parent Testimonial:

"Teacher and me has been such an extraordinary opportunity for my 2 1/2 year old.  She was born with down syndrome and like any parent, I want her to be able to exceed in school.  The class is a perfect opportunity for her to be around other kids and she has not only greatly enjoyed it and I feel the other kids have also benefited from Maggie being in their class.  The teachers have done an amazing job by including Maggie in ever aspect of the class without taking time away from the other children.  I am no longer worried about Maggie attending school." - Maggie's Mom
