Preschool (4-5 Yrs)

Preschool (3 yrs)

We know that the years before school are a time when children can develop a love of learning and solid foundation for their future academic success. Our program is designed to help preschools gain the basic skills that will help carry them through Kindergarten and beyond. Through numerous activities, including circle time, small group curriculum based activities, and music and movement; students will be well prepared for their upcoming school years. Early literacy skills are taught daily, so that when your child leaves the program they will be able to do things such as write their name and letters and numbers, recite the days of the week and months of the year, and recognize a variety of sight words. Sweet Angels provides a curriculum that is well-rounded and includes programs not seen at other preschools, such as teaching the alphabet, numbers and basic words in sign language and Spanish.

The preschool rooms at Sweet Angels are bright and inviting, welcoming your child to come and learn in a safe and comfortable environment. Age-appropriate and educational toys are available for children during free times, and our staff is there to help guide interaction and spark imaginations while children play with them together.

Our highly-trained and caring staff will not only help prepare your child for school academically, but will also help foster their social and emotional development. Your child’s day will include time to play with friends outside and do arts and crafts activities. These times will help preschoolers develop gross and fine motor skills, as well as practice sharing and communicating with others.
