Preschool and Kindergarten
Welcome to Lily's Garden! At the heart of our program is a warm, nurturing, and stimulating environment where we provide a solid foundation for a strong academic future. At the same time we broaden your child's horizons by allowing him or her to freely express his or her unique creativity. We believe in instilling good habits from an early age to foster an effective and healthy work ethic. As a result, many of our graduates go on to comfortably skip the first grade. Our curriculum spans over a broad range of topics including the arts, sciences, and geography with particular emphasis on reinforcing language and math skills. The following is an overview of what your child will be learning!
