Pre-School and Pre-Kindergarten

Garrett’s Way gives preschoolers and pre-kindergarteners an exciting, hands-on learning experience that addresses the individual interests and needs of each child.


Our Pre-School is a 12-month program for children ages 3 to 4 years, with a heavy emphasis on school readiness and literacy. Staff members help your child develop a love of learning through active play and fun Learning Centers.


Pre-kindergarten is designed for children who have reached the age of 4. Teachers use a directed play approach to develop basic math and literacy skills.

We inspire children to engage their own unique aptitudes across a wide range of subjects including social studies, science, technology, and health and safety. Our curriculum further helps with children’s social and personal development, motor skills, and physical fitness.
