We have created the following document to help give you a better understanding of what is involved in a preschooler’s day. We also hope that it gives you insight into the activities that we do, as well as the rationale behind each activity. Our goal is to let children be children while also giving them a solid academic foundation that will prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond!
