The Playroom Pre-K was exactly what I was looking for! It meets only one day per week and focuses on academics. My child is participating in circle time, learning basic academic skills necessary to move into kindergarten, and is socializing with peers. The energetic staff keeps the children constantly engaged in fun and creative ways!

Pre-K day is my daughter’s favorite day of the week! Ms. Kelsey has such a fun way of presenting skills, even to a hesitant learner. After class, I  love to hear about all of the silly things that happened during class time. We both appreciate that the program focuses on the whole child and teaches skills using music and movement, not just sitting at a desk.
