4K Mission Statement

The primary goal of our 4-year-old kindergarten program is to provide developmental education for our children that will prepare them for their next step in schooling: kindergarten. We believe that our primary responsibility is to provide a safe and trusting environment for children and their families. Each child learns at a different pace and in a different way. We believe that through time, preparation, guidance, and lots of love and compassion, your child will reach a level of success.
