PRESCHOOL

Educating hearts and minds.

CitiSchool takes an integrative approach to teaching combining the best  practices of both traditional and more progressive methodologies. We understand that each child is unique, and so our programs are designed to provide experiential learning moments carefully planned and guided by professionals in the field of early childhood education. We believe that children grow and develop the most when there is a strong connection between home and school. We welcome parent involvement and there will be many opportunities to get involved in the classroom at CitiSchool.

We maintain small class sizes to allow for more individualized attention for each child in the class and gives our amazing teachers an opportunity to really get to know each of their students.
