Preschool

The Early Childhood Recreation Learning Program is an ideal environment allowing children to receive a quality educational and recreational experience. Our philosophy is to learn through play. The teachers are educated in the field of early childhood and are there to assist in nurturing your child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. The program is designed to develop your child’s self image.
Early Learners-Freedom

This class provides an experience that supports the social, emotional and intellectual growth of your child. Children focus on pre-reading, pre-writing, science and math and are encouraged to become independent and self-disciplined. Our curriculum incorporates the kindergarten preparation skills desired by kindergarten teachers of School District #100. For all day class participation please register for AM and PM classes.
