The Willows & Magnolias

Our wonderful Willow explorers are with Ms. Cassandra! This is our younger preschool program we offer - ages ranging from three to four. 

Then with our older preschoolers the magnificent Magnolia class we have our teacher - Ms. Elise! This group ranges from ages three to four as well. Some of their favorite activities include nature based science projects, art, and playing in the sand box with friends!

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!
