"KCC Preschool Program"

Preschool

Curious, energetic and imaginative are just a few words to describe our 3 year olds! To help direct that energy, you will find our classrooms full of literature, language arts, math, science, creative art, dramatic play, music and movement, as well as, outdoor activities each and every day!

We provide hands-on activities and independent creative play to allow your child to develop at their own pace. Your child will enjoy working with Zoo-phonics (www.zoophonics.com), which teaches the children letter knowledge and phonological awareness through the many ways of learning (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic). It’s even fun with characters and music – they love it!

You will see your child build friendships, develop problem solving skills, and create a wonderful imagination during these very important years!
