    • Interactive Technology

      Our kindergarten students use computers and iPads to further their learning. This not only gets them ready for the real world but makes learning phonics/math fun and interactive.

    • Baby Sign Language

      Studies have shown that teaching young infants/toddlers baby signs helps parents and caregivers communicate with their preverbal children. Children as young as 6 months old can communicate their needs, showing signs like more, drink, diaper.
