Social-Emotional Learning For Their Future Happiness

Your child learns lasting skills now that positively impact their long-term school success, employment, relationships, and more. With faith-based values, empathy, and sharing, we empower your child with both confidence and kindness.

Get A Head Start On School Success With Early Literacy

Early letter recognition, following plots and stories, and other pre-literacy skills develop your child’s love of reading as they gain academic advantage for their start in school. Abeka® phonics prepares enthusiastic readers through fun games, stories, and songs.

Children Are More Than Ready For Kindergarten

Sensory, hands-on activities from Frog Street©, the project-based InvestiGator Club® curriculum, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities build your child’s critical thinking skills and love of learning, ready for the future.

Dance, Spanish, & Baby Signing Included In Tuition

Exciting activities broaden your child’s horizons and fill each week with fun. Spanish and Baby Signing sessions stimulate their growing linguistic and communication skills, while dance keeps them healthy and moving through creative self-expression.

Build Their Character With A Focus On Faith

Your child connects with themselves and the world around them through faith-based activities. Weekly chapel and bible stories help guide and support your family culture of love, respect, and communication.

Kids Stay Active & Grow Strong With Outdoor Play

Every day, your child enjoys time outside for the chance to flex their muscles and build confidence in their gross motor skills. They scramble up climbing frames, tend to lush gardens, and challenge themselves on the basketball court and bike tracks.

Rest Easy! Your Child’s Safety Is Always A Priority

Your child is in the safe hands of teachers with CPR certifications, plus state and federal checks. Security measures, including restricted-access controls, a fully fenced yard, and internal-use CCTV, keep everyone protected for your peace of mind.

Your child learns Spanish! Children under the age of 6 are incredible sponges for absorbing new information. Learning a foreign language in preschool sets the stage for your child’s future success in learning a language.
A strong focus on science, technology, engineering, art, and math activities helps inspire your child’s curiosity.
We love to embrace the whole child and we’re thrilled to offer a weekly music specialist at A Perfect Start! Exposing children to music helps them build confidence and motor skills all while allowing them to practice self-expression.
Your child’s safety is our first priority. Upon enrolling your child, you will be asked to pick a 4-digit pin to sign your child in and out daily after entering the building. We strongly encourage our parents not to “piggy back” with one and other while entering our schools. While it’s second nature to want to hold the door for a fellow parent with their hands full, it is best to swipe your key card individually, so we will have a record of who specifically enters our building at all times. If you know you are going to have your hands full during drop off, please don’t hesitate to call ahead to ask your site director for a hand. We are more than happy to meet you outside.
Pumpkin picking, strawberry picking, doctor’s offices, OH MY! We are always planning exciting adventures for your child to learn outside of the classroom! Most recently, our pre-kindergartners practiced their mannersat a local restaurant! Have a brilliant idea for a field trip? Tell us! We love parent input and ideas!
We have had incredible involvement with our Guest Speakers Series at A Perfect Start. Most recently we had a pastry chef talk to our kids about working in the dessert field and the kids even got to decorate their own fancy desserts! We have had visits from pediatricians, dentists, veterinarians, fire fighters, police officers, librarians, lawyers, wildlife specialists, yoga instructors… The list goes on and on! If you are interested in coming to be a guest speaker or know someone great, please let us know! We are always trying to involve our parents.
