We are proud to have been part of the community of Scottsdale since 1950. Our preschool is a caring place where your child can grow, learn and thrive.

  • Parent boards provide daily and weekly classroom updates.
  • Monthly folder includes skills and goals, samples of your child’s work and ideas for activities to do at home.
