While providing a safe, warm and nurturing environment, our staff addresses the social, emotional and physical needs of children. Through thematic units, arts and crafts and dramatic play, the "whole" child will flourish. Full- and part-time classes for 2- and 3-year-olds, free Universal Pre-K for 4-year-old children with extended day option. Open year round; summer program available. 

Smart Start's approach to our curriculum is learn through play. While this learning is self-directed, our teachers are facilitators. They are present to answers questions, ask questions, observe and record what they see which helps them plan accordingly.

Smart Start is a child-centered learn through play preschool. Our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child. Your child's cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development is considered when developing a learning program for your child. A developmentally appropriate curriculum encourages success for all children.
