“If you’re going to equalize the academic playing field, you’ve got to get the kids in early childhood programs.”
– Paul Vallas quotes
Preschool Program at the Happy Souls Playschool is designed for children 2 1/2 – 5 years. The program is designed to focus on the physical, social-emotional, intellectual and creative development of the children.
Our Preschool program is a blend of physical education, art, and crafts, activities promoting intellectual and cognitive thinking and some basic snack preparing (so that child learns self-help). We provide active playtime every day that motivates children to adapt a healthy lifestyle.
How does our program help your child learn?
While playing in our play centers, such as the dramatic play, block area and our table top area your child will be learning:
- Cooperating with others (taking turns)
- Using language skills
- Verbalizing ideas
- Developing and using fine and gross motor skills
- Classifying by shape, size and color
- Experimenting with balance and form
- Using imagination

While we are having group/circle time children are learning:
