Fabulous Flamingos (Pre-K)

We provide expansive learning environments for our four and five year olds indoors and out. During this last year before going off to kindergarten, the children learn to be independent thinkers and doers. There are many independent, as well as group activities to enjoy throughout the day. These activities allow the children to enjoy learning and to share what they have learned with others while doing so. Writing in journals, learning to write his/her name, and learning to tie their shoes, are just a few things they may come home bragging about.
