Prepper (30 - 36 months)


As a Prepper, your child is transitioning from a toddler to a preschool student. Chatting with friends increases verbal and social skills. Solving shape puzzles strengthens problem-solving skills, while drawing and painting nurture creativity. Prepper teachers work to foster self-esteem during one-on-one journal time and in group activities. As preparation for moving into our exclusive Tutor TimeĀ® LifeSmartā„¢ preschool curriculum, we introduce one concept at a time, so your child feels proud, not frustrated.
Because this curriculum recognizes that there are many different ways to be smart, your child will learn to love learning. And that means your Prepper will really be prepared.

Special Announcements

The Prepper Pears!

Our Preppers had a great September exploring their new classroom! Miss Christina, Miss Nicole and Miss Lauren have enjoyed getting to know their new class and fallen in love with all the unique personalities! Our Prepper program focuses on the basic developmental areas of early childhood (Language, Cognitive, Social Emotional and Physical), while gently transitioning into more structured Pre-School curriculum. They are already having a blast sharing their stories in there LifeSmart Journals and engaged in hands-on sensory activities everyday. Each morning, they are practicing their colors, shapes and social skills at their Circle Time. They learn to play together, share space and take turns during their Active Investigation time. The Pears are looking forward to all of the great Fall activities we have planned for October! Be sure to stop by or visit either our Photo Gallery or our FaceBook page to see what the children are up to!

The Oranges made a pendulum painting!

Lets count the scarves then match the colors with the blocks.

We work on our fine motor skills when building with blocks.

The oranges used blue tape to make a road for the cars.
