Preschool & Pre-K

The Northeast Family Center also offers full-day Preschool and Pre-K classes within our Early Learning Center. Our teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities based on the Creative Curriculum to prepare your child for kindergarten. The daily schedule includes learning experiences in math, social & emotional development, literacy, music and movement, and science. Lunch and afternoon snacks are provided. Families have the option to enroll in two, three, or five days each week. The school year runs from August to May.
