Patti's Preschool is committed to providing individualized care by accepting and building on each child's unique strengths and capabilities.
The program is tailored to meeting the needs of each child, rather than forcing children to adjust to a rigid, confining atmosphere.
Our program includes learning experiences in the areas of language and literature, social relationships, mathematics and science, health and safety, and the creative arts (music, art and movement).
There is a balance between vigorous, stimulating activities and quiet, restful activities.
We have large time blocks for individual activities separated from shorter time periods for group activities, clean-up and meals.
Our spacious, grassy play area encourages the children to run and play games with their friends.
Our students have the opportunity to develop their large motor skills with wheel toys and climbing equipment.
Simple principles of science and math, as well as an appreciation of nature, are instilled through our gardening program.
