Children are introduced to shape, number and color recognition through Show & Tell and themed activities while large motor skills are enhanced through gym, creative movement activities and outdoor play.

Children develop readiness skills through exposure to upper- and lower-case letters, sound recognition, reading and writing activities, math concepts and color and shape review.
