Early Childhood 

We provide an integrated approach to education to advance the intellectual, emotional, physical, and social development of three, four and five year olds. This campus offers an educational program that focuses on the individual student and ensures the class meets and excels in all content areas of the New York State Pre-Kindergarten learning standards.
