About Begindergarten Preschool
The goal of Begindergarten Preschool is to provide a caring learning environment that focuses on personal, social and intellectual development.
We provide children with the opportunity to learn about their environment, get along with and respect others, accept responsibility, develop a positive self-image, develop confidence in new situations, and handle emotions in acceptable ways.
Our philosophy is that each child has a unique personality and will be treated as a special individual. Begindergarten Preschool offers classes for two age groups of children 3 through 5 years.
