THE Cherry Blossoms

Preschool

Get ready to have some fun, Preschoolers! Our teacher, Miss Nicole, in the Cherry Blossoms have exciting lessons planned and has an amazing education background.  Not only are we going to really get into the Reggio Emilia learning style in Preschool, but your children are going to be a part of our outdoor classroom design team!  We have two large playgrounds located in the front of our school.  One playground is our typical large motor playground with fun activities while the other one is our playscape!  The natural playscape will also be used for our outdoor classroom!!  We are slowly building the playscape so it is just perfect for the kids.  Come tour today!
