Our state-licensed Preschool prides itself on providing a quality program that emphasizes learning through play, in a safe and nurturing environment. Our Preschool provides thoughtfully planned experiences and opportunities, which stimulate learning in all developmental areas: social, emotional, physical, and cognitive.
We provide a balanced program that includes choice and structured activities, whole group, small group and individual activities, and teacher and child-directed experiences. Our classroom environments are designed to encourage exploration and interaction with other children, teachers, and learning materials. Our curriculum is centered on dramatic play, blocks, art, sensory, science, math, music, movement, language and literature experiences. We seek to instill a lifelong love of learning!

Other policies and procedures we’re implementing to reduce the risk of coronavirus exposure include, but may not be limited to:
If a child develops symptoms associated with COVID-19, they will be isolated, and they will have to be picked up. There will be a strict 48-hour sick policy. If a child has a fever, they cannot return until they are 48 hours fever free without the aid of medicine.
Failure to comply with COVID-19 protocols can result in dismissal from the program.
The way we operate may continue to change throughout the year as the Commonwealth and our local public health officials offer additional guidance.
During the initial registration process, you will compete a child information form, giving basic contact information along with the program you would like to register for. After registering for your desired program, you will be sent a link to access the ePACT system. Through this link you will be able to upload and complete forms including necessary medical information, emergency contacts and any special needs your child may have.
ePACT is a system that is designed to create efficiencies for both customers and staff in maintaining confidential information in a secure and safe manner. ePACT maintains the same levels of security as online banking, and limits access only to the administrators who have been assigned privileges.
Through ePACT, you will be able to create your own accounts, upload and complete the required forms giving DPRT the necessary information for your child(ren). You will continue to have easy access to this system to update your account as needed.
For our administrators, this system will allow quick access to pertinent participant information, decrease the need for paper copies making our programs more "green" and give administrators a variety of ways to communicate with you regarding program updates, alerts and requests for information.
