Preschool (Ages 3-5)

Young children thrive in our small classes of 6-9 students where teachers focus on individual needs and development. Our inclusive school community creates a nurturing learning environment where staff, parents and students model respect and an ethic of care. Exciting, hands-on activities and frequent outdoor play will build your child’s knowledge in all developmental areas: physical, social, emotional and intellectual. Our preschool program has been meeting the needs of young children in the Roanoke Valley for over 50 years.
