Pre-School Goals

At the Learning Zone Pre-School and Day Care we believe that children learn best when activities are appropriate for their age and presented an entertaining, secure, atmosphere. Our pre-school activities will encourage, not push, your child to learn new skills as they are ready.

Our pre-school staff strives to assure that children entering kindergarten are ready.

A child's kindergarten readiness should include counting to ten, beginning sounds of some words, cutting with scissors, starting to follow rules, managing bathroom needs, buttoning clothes, tracing basic shapes and much more.

Additional programs such as arts &; crafts, music, PE, dance are available at our child care center.
