children first preschool is a developmental preschool. Our philosophy is that "children learn through play." Children are encouraged to be independent and to develop skills that foster a positive self-image. Hands-on activities with age appropriate goals are available in classroom centers. Each child is unique and is encouraged to work in his or her own way to develop to full potential. Our goal is to foster a love of learning in a caring atmosphere.
