Hidden Treasures Preschool


Hidden treasures is a place where children can engage in the exploration of art, music, language and play as a coactive group, while being honored for their individual interests and passions. Our teachers help the children create an environment of mutual respect and appreciation. We do not present traditional academics. We believe our rich environment and daily activities provide a wealth of foundational math, reading, writing, science and language experiences, through fully-engrossed hands-on participation. This more spontaneous and integrated approach nurtures the children's innate sense of wonder, keeping alive the excitement of discovery and learning — ultimately building a sound and sturdy foundation for later academics.

We are a two year program where our younger children start out on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the following year, as four year olds, attend Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
