Our pre-school (pre-K) program is for three and four year olds. We care about your child’s academic, spiritual, and physical development, and our aim is to have their learning experience be an enjoyable one. We employ a "Readiness" preschool curriculum - while there are opportunities for play, the program is directed toward preparation for kindergarten.

Hours are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is closed when public schools are closed.

Monthly Tuition - $100.00

Carrie Hagar and Fran Robertson have been working together for eighteen years. Fran says about Carrie, "She has a big heart and would do anything for anybody. She wants to teach them in the right direction to go, so she can be tough when needed, and keep the kids inline, although inside, she's a big softy. We make a great team and really help balance each other out."
