Our Preschool Philosophy & Curriculum

Sunbeams & Rainbows preschool provides a safe and nurturing learning environment that embraces all children and their diverse learning styles, needs and interests. Our instructors offer unique learning experiences that are play-based, developmentally appropriate, and respectful of social, cultural, and linguistic diversity. We prepare preschoolers for elementary school and beyond by incorporating activities that promote social-emotional, physical, language and cognitive development.
