Philosophy

Caring, qualified teachers engage and inspire our students to develop an excitement and joy for learning. In our sensory rich classrooms, students take part in hands-on learning that develops their fine and gross motor skills as well as strengthens their self-esteem and communication, reading, science, math, and literacy skills. Our theme based, developmental curriculum enhances a child’s total development and nurtures their potential as they prepare for Kindergarten. The character values of caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and support for the family unit are at the heart of everything we do.

Our curriculum is enriched with Spanish, Kids Fit classes, outdoor play, H.E.P.A., (Healthy Eating and Physical Activities), STREAM, (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art and Math activities), swim for the Saratoga Branch 3 and 4 year olds, tumbling for the Wilton Branch 3 and 4 year olds.

Students at our Wesley Intergenerational Learning Center held at the Wesley Community have a unique balance between a wonderful preschool atmosphere and meaningful time with older adults. Thirty minutes of each class day, the students and older adults are brought together to interact, engage, support, educate and care for one another. The bonds that are created help our students grow and become kind, well-balanced youth as they develop an excitement and joy for learning.
