Key components of Preschool Academy:
Introduction to Music:
Our music program is developed and conducted by Music Together, an international early childhood music and movement program. This research based, developmentally appropriate music curriculum will bring out your child’s creative and artistic side. Our program consists of singing, dancing and making music.

In our Home economics program, children will participate in preparing simple snacks such as fruits, vegetables and various whole grain foods. They will learn about the 5 food groups and about healthy eating. This Option is designed to expose children to nutritious food options, to heighten their senses and to increase independence and confidence!
Arts and Crafts:
Our art program focuses on building our students creativity and confidence. Children are encouraged to explore, use their senses and share and reflect on their creations in our single purpose art studio. We integrate our art work with the other subjects in our curriculum so that the children get the most out of their learning experience. Art time is a great opportunity for children to develop their motor skills and their hand eye coordination.
Introduction to French:
Children are much more successful at learning a second language when they begin at a young age. Learning a second language is wonderful for brain growth and development therefore we offer French as part of our curriculum. The Children are introduced to basic French vocabulary.
