Welcome to Get Set for School!

Our Pre-K curriculum was created for you and your Pre-K children. The curriculum suits a wide range of children and adapts to their changing needs as they grow. It acknowledges what all great educators know and what research supports: that learning needs to be joyful, child friendly, and active. We believe in meeting children where they are and giving them the experiences that will enable them to blossom.
