Preschool

Imagination Station Preschool (ages 3-5)

Our preschool curriculum promotes individual children’s growth through learning, exploration and creativity. We are strong advocates for project based experiences and utilize the Creative Curriculum to support this type of child initiated learning, which is fully aligned with state and national early learning standards. The curriculum focuses on the interests of children, which creates the study topics of our lessons. Creative Curriculum promotes social, emotional and physical development, language, literacy, math and cognitive skills. The curriculum also includes science, social studies and the arts to develop the whole child based on their individual developmental needs. Cooking, science experiments, gross motor play, creative art experiences and learning through technology are some of the activities that are part of our curriculum. We also expose your child to a physical curriculum that includes swimming, tumbling, gym and ice skating.
