Preschool memberships are available to children ages 3-5 who are not enrolled in school for the 2014-2015 school year. This program offer members countless opportunities to learn each day, with the chance to develop fine and gross motor skills, participate in dramatic play and arts, engage with other children and adult staff, and develop math, literacy, and critical-thinking skills.
