About Our Programs

Class Room Monthly Themes

As a school, we believe it is important to be outstanding members of our community. During the school year, we will learn about being a good friend, taking turns, saying please and thank you, and helping others. We learn through positive direction from our teachers and other students, as well as by doing acts for others.

Some of these acts of kindness we have participated in are: collecting food for food pantries, collecting and delivering toiletry items to the Waite House, baking breads and making cards for the senior center, making thank you notes for our firefighters, cookies for cops, and having special adults in for a thank you brunch.

    “The teachers are wonderful, the facility is clean and well-structured for preschoolers to learn and play, and the curriculum provides a good balance of preschool math, reading, writing, and art. Our 5-year-old, whose birthday is in August, has absolutely thrived in his kindergarten class, and we give a lot of credit to ChildIt for getting him prepared”.
