Give your child a strong start through Little Learners Kindergarten Prep Preschool

Little Learners Kindergarten Prep Preschool is a quality early childhood education program that offers children ages 4-5 a fun and challenging curriculum to prepare them for kindergarten. Small class sizes, an engaging approach to learning, and a safe environment make Little Learners Kindergarten Prep the perfect choice for families looking to give their child a head start in school.

Philosophy & Teaching Approach

My goal is to introduce preschoolers to a range of wonderful subjects, expand their basic knowledge and prepare them academically for kindergarten, while also cultivating their imaginations and strengthening social skills. I have a particular love of reading and strive to instill that same love in my students.

Each child learns in different ways. To ensure that each student has the highest degree of success, I incorporate multiple learning methods. For example, when helping students learn letter names and sounds, I introduce the letter, an associated picture, and the ASL sign.

Small Class Sizes & Productive Schedule

Class sizes are limited to 8 students. I want to ensure that your student receives the personal attention and support they need.

Example of Daily Schedule

Opening Activities (Introduce/review weekly theme; Pledge of Allegiance; Calendar; Weather; Assign daily jobs)

Letter introduction

Dramatic/Free playtime*


Music/Art time

Number introduction

Story time

Movement time


*As preschoolers are learning to understand the world around them, they often enjoy more complex dramatic play like pretending to be a doctor or a chef. Dramatic play can increase creativity and encourage self-expression. This type of play can also build real-life skills like cooperation, problem-solving, and conflict-resolution.
