Pre-Kindergarten (4 - 5 year olds)

At Heritage Christian Daycare & Learning Center a new world of learning opens up in our Pre-Kindergarten program. This is the year, in your child's life, that he or she begins to expand on skills critical to their future academic success. This is why we provide a well-balanced curriculum to address the needs of the whole child. Not only are academic needs addressed, but emotional, social, and spiritual development is given high priority as well. It is this “whole child” approach that has allowed our children to reach success both here in our program and later when they start Kindergarten. At Heritage our teachers’ primary goal is helping your child’s development.
