Our Preschool’s Programs

Kind Child

Kind Child is a regular subject within our Ascend Curriculum and we focus on social-emotional skills each month and character traits such as Respect, Responsibility, Sharing, and a Positive Self-Image every two months. We want every child to feel at home at our preschool and we have found that we focus on the emotional well-being of each child in our care, we strengthen our school too!
