- Our curriculum is designed to meet the developmental and educational needs of the young child and incorporates play into their learning activities. Virginia`s Foundation Blocks for Early Learning guides us in the literacy, math, science and social science concepts that are developed in our preschool and Junior Kindergarten programs. Our Kindergarten program is designed not only to meet, but also to exceed the Virginia Standards of Learning. Our small group setting, as well as classroom and campus design presents a comfortable and warm atmosphere which eases the transition from home to school for our students.
