The JRC Preschool Experience

By the time a child reaches the preschool ages of 3, 4 and 5 they have already developed the emotional and intellectual foundation that they will build on for the rest of their life. If they have been taught to be confident and inquisitive explorers, they will be ready to learn about anything and everything that is of interest to them. At this age, that's just about everything!  

Preschool prepares children for success ..not just for kindergarten and their school career...but for life.

At JRC your child's success is our goal!

The JRC Preschool classrooms are exciting places where discovery is celebrated every minute of every day. A key part of your preschooler's experience here is our talented and caring staff of teachers. They might prepare a lesson in math and science around the sand and water table. They might use shaving cream to teach about texture, color, and design. They might teach economics with a field trip to a local farm and then a game of 'Grocery Store'.  

Everything a preschooler sees is an opportunity for discovery and learning.
