Our pre-school offers a year round program.  We are open Monday - Friday, 7:00am - 6:00pm.

Tours are given during school hours.  We are able to give tours after hours and on weekends.  Please call to schedule a tour during hours that we are closed.

VPK class begins promptly at 8:30 and ends at 11:30.  It is important that your child arrives on time, stays the duration of class, and attends class each day.

Our three preschool classes (ages 18 months - three years) begin promptly at 9:00.  In order for your child to experience all six centers please arrive by 9:00 each day.




Students are accepted at ages 18 months through Pre-Kindergarten

VPK is available to those students who qualify.




Primary Prep offers multi-level Pre-School classes in which students are placed by academic, emotional, and social readiness.  We are approved by the state of Florida to offer Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) to students who qualify. 




All students need to have a healthy breakfast before coming to school.  An ideal, nutritious breakfast contains a balance of complex carbohydrates and protein.



A healthy morning snack of fruit and grain is offered each day at 7:50am.  Healthy afternoon snacks are also provided after nap time at 3:00pm.



Water is available to students at all times.  In addition to lunch and snack, water breaks are scheduled.  If packing your child’s lunch, it is not necessary to send a drink.



Students are required to bring their own lunch except on Pizza Fridays.  We encourage you to provide nutritional lunches.  Sandwiches on whole grain bread, yogurt, cheese, fresh fruits, and fresh vegetables are great foods that help to keep children’s immune systems healthy.  We do not warm foods.

For student safety and program efficiency, please follow these guidelines: 

We do not allow the following foods at school due to the high risk of choking:  Hot Dogs, Popcorn, Hard Candy, Lollipops, Marshmallow Products, and Rice Crispy Teats.  Grapes must be cut or diced to be served.


Lunches must be brought in a standard lunch box and be of practical size.  Refrigeration is not provided. We are able to heat lunches.  All foods should be ready to eat and fruits and vegetables cut and cored. 




You can purchase lunch on Friday for $3.00.  We serve cheese pizza, a vegetable, and a fresh fruit.  Children receive extra helpings.  In the event the school is closed Friday, we will offer pizza on Thursday.
