While providing a safe, warm and nurturing environment, our staff addresses the social, emotional and physical needs of children. Through thematic units, arts and crafts and dramatic play, the "whole" child will flourish. Full- and part-time classes for 2- and 3-year-olds, free Universal Pre-K for 4-year-old children with extended day option. Open year round; summer program available. 

Smart Start's approach to our curriculum is learn through play. While this learning is self-directed, our teachers are facilitators. They are present to answers questions, ask questions, observe and record what they see which helps them plan accordingly.

Smart Start is a child-centered learn through play preschool. Our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child. Your child's cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development is considered when developing a learning program for your child. A developmentally appropriate curriculum encourages success for all children.

  1. Morning Meeting (Greeting song, weather, calendar, news, events of day, lesson based on theme)
  2. free play in centers (living area, block area, library, science center, toys & puzzles, art center, and sensory table)
  3. music and movement
  4. story time
