CURRICULUM and PHILOSOPHY
The Little Braves Preschool follows all Head Start guidelines and practices, including the use of the Creative Curriculum. (Please know that as a new program, we are coming up to speed on all these requirements.) We believe that preschool gives students a great start to kindergarten and therefore all of schooling. Preschool students learn school behaviors and expectations and learn basic academics (shapes, colors, counting, some letters, etc.) through play and table activities.
