Curriculum

In Kaleidoscope Preschool, children will have opportunities to explore and discover the curriculum below through hands-on activities designed and facilitated by our exceptional teachers.  Preschool learners will delight in learning experiences that expand their world to include peer interactions, growth and development nurtured in an enriching art-filled environment, and in sharing their new world with friends and family.

Our cutting-edge arts-centered program allows us unique opportunities to host guest teachers for arts, theater, and dance. We have our own stage (auditorium) and outdoor play/art space. Our creativity-inspiring facility encourages students to explore in a vibrant, nurturing, and safe environment.
