The goal is to work on fine motor skills, letter recognition, sound recognition, and communication that will strengthen their foundation of learning as they enter elementary school.  We strive to offer a variety of learning experiences that enhance retention of information, as well as, providing a fun experience for the students.  First For Kids Preschool uses the Beyond Centers and Circle Time curriculum, as well as, The Creative Curriculum.  This is a great opportunity for parents to ensure a successful start to their child’s education.
