Tell us about your program: My grandmother in law started the preschool. I am the third generation to teach here. Here we strive to help the children be prepared for kindergarten. We work with the kindergarten teacher to help the children get prepared. We let the children do things on their own and help them become better citizen. Children blossom at their own rate. We help make transitions more smooth for the parents and children.
