Preschool is a very special time in a child’s life, at MCP, our program gives children the foundation on which all future learning can be built. Learning and growing is a whole body experience! Children need not only those important pre-Kindergarten skills, but also to develop motor skills, communication, and social and emotional health. We strive to give children the opportunity to learn in a multi-sensory way, engaging not only their minds, but their bodies. We are a small, family oriented school, where children have a strong sense of belonging and feelings of security. Learning occurs naturally when a child is having fun in a loving, caring environment.

Our program is designed to enhance each child’s individual physical, intellectual and social/emotional development through hands-on learning. The school’s philosophy is based on the premise that children learn through play, engaging in activities that stimulate and motivate them, thus creating a life long love of learning. Highly trained professional personnel, along with the cooperative involvement of our parents, are key to creating our high-quality program.
