Philosophy:

Here at Lil Griz preschool we provide meaningful learning experiences for the children and base our curriculum on their interests. Hands on messy learning is ever-present in our classroom, where any given day you may find a multitude of sensory experiences sprinkled throughout the classroom. Through the child’s exploration and teachers guidance we hope to help each child find in themselves a passion for learning.

The first few years of a child’s life are the most important developmentally. Lil Griz preschool focuses on developing the whole child in the different areas of: Creativity, Discovery, Social and Emotional development, pre-academic, physical, cognitive, and independence skills.

Our Pre-Kindergarten class is led by Ms. Melissa, with Ms. Rheanna and Ms. Brooke as secondary teachers. With a variety of ever changing centers and playful learning, our classroom gives each child the opportunity to learn and express themselves in creative and encouraging ways!
