We offer preschool for ages two through five years old. We use our own curriculum, developed through many years of experience and education, presented in a fun and creative way so that your preschooler develops a lifelong love of learning.  The use of manipulatives teach math and science while children also learn letter shapes and sounds, numbers, colors, shapes and how to write their name.  We follow weekly themes such as dinosaurs, nursery rhymes, Martin Luther King, Jr., bugs and butterflies as well as incorporate events such as Black History month, Presidential election and space travel.

We also include Spanish and sign language in the weekly lesson plan and have many opportunities for parent involvement such as Donuts for Dad, Valentines Day lunch with Mom, Grandparents breakfast, Cardinal's Opening Day party  and quarterly Parent Meetings.

We do quarterly assessments to keep you up to date with your child's milestones and keep you informed of your child's day with Daily Take Home sheets and communication with your child's teacher.  At age two, we also start portfolios, that follow your child through their time here at JellyBean Island and is presented upon Kindergarten Prep graduation, so you have a special keepsake of your child's preschool years.

The teacher to child ratio is 1:8 in the two year old room and 1:10 in the 3-5 year old rooms.
