Kidventures Preschool

                      Welcome to Kidventures Preschool at The Clubhouse

                            "Where learning is always an adventure"!!  

   Our goal is to provide a nurturing, fun, hands-on, early learning environment that addresses the needs of the whole child in each area of development: cognitive, emotional-social, physical, communication, adaptive and moral.  We understand that the cornerstone of children’s learning is play, and our center-based classroom encourages exploration, growth and independence through challenging, differentiated activities.  Our themed units cover all educational disciplines, including language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, motor skills and the arts.  We look forward to partnering with you in your child’s educational journey to foster a lifelong love of learning.
