Our UPK (Universal Pre-Kindergarten) program is designed to provide your child with a strong foundation for their educational journey. At our school, we prioritize early childhood development and education, ensuring that your child's first school experience is both enjoyable and enriching. We introduce age-appropriate literacy and numeracy concepts to help your child develop essential skills that will prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.

We encourage parents to be active partners in their child's education journey. You'll have opportunities to stay informed, participate in school activities, and collaborate with teachers to support your child's development. Our goal is to ensure that your child is fully prepared for the transition to kindergarten, both academically and socially. We work closely with our local school district to align our curriculum with kindergarten expectations.
