About the Program

Curious, Excited, Ready to Learn, Fun-Loving-these are few words to describe our Preschool II class! Our unique program challenges and inspires our 3-4 year olds, combining learning with fun in every way possible. Their busy day goes beyond the classroom with lots of music, movement and dramatic playtime as well as art, Chinese and physical education. Friendships are built as children learn to work together and play together.

  • Our preschool II class uses the Tools of the Mind Curriculum along with supplementary programs that add enhancements.
  • The curriculum builds a solid foundation of skill development in fine motor, gross motor, language, science and basic math skills.

The Preschool II teacher is Mrs. Diana Hall and she has a degree in Early Childhood Education as well as training in the outstanding early childhood curriculum of Tools of the Mind. She is a truly passionate educator that is kind and loved by all of her students.
This is a warm and loving classroom, creating a very bright start in early education for 3-4 year olds. The children learn through thematic units that turn their classroom special places, where they build a deeper understanding of the skills that they are working on.
