Here at Great Beginnings, we believe in the spiritual, educational and overall development of children as they grow, learn, play and explore the world around them.¬†Our program is carefully designed to meet each child’s individual needs. We involve all our children in the learning process from the infant class through four year old learners. We believe that no child is too young to learn with developmentally appropriate activities. The content and experience offered vary according to the age of the children. Our Nursery Programs are open from 7:30am – 6:00pm while our Preschool Programs are open from 7:00am – 6:00pm.

  • Pre-and Beginning Reading
