We love young children. They make us smile and keep our hearts full. To maintain consistency and a peaceful atmosphere, we place them in very small groups with the same teacher and friends for the entire school year. ​

During class, we enjoy songs, stories, letters, sounds, writing, art, math, and science activities. We also have 15-20 minutes each day with our school Spanish teacher, a native Spanish-speaker who adores kids. The children also use our big gym, the library, and the indoor playground. Often, the children in preschool prep and their families join the Eagle Creek community for events such as Trunk or Treat and Santa Breakfast. 

Our preschool prep teachers are state-certified experts at helping children develop social skills (such as waiting their turn) and self-help skills (such as putting on their coats). Most importantly, we love to cuddle!

  • Each group has 4 to 10 children and 1 or 2 teachers.

  • Each group stays together the entire school year.

  • When children turn 3 years old, they may join our summer camps
