Early Preschool

Lavenders & Dogwoods

Ms. Shelby and Ms. Brittney are the teachers for our lovely Lavender Explorers! This is our younger two's program, their ages range from twenty-four months through thirty months. Some of their favorite activities include nature based art, pretend play and building castles in the sand!


Ms. Yanet and Ms. Elise are with our older two's - the darling Dogwood Explorers. Their ages range from thirty months through thirty-six months. 


Throughout the year our teachers are consistently evaluating each child based on age-appropriate benchmarks in order to assess individual growth and development. We believe this enables us to communicate with families and set realistic goals that will set your child up for success throughout their future!
