Preschool and PreKindergarten

Embers Preschool Program nurtures learning through play. Our play-based PreKindergarten Program ensures that students are Kindergarten ready.

Preschool Program

The Embers Academy Preschool program encompasses two levels: Preschool and PreKindergarten. Both levels offer children the opportunity to learn through play, which is the work of childhood. Children are engaged in the learning process through developmentally-appropriate lessons and activities in the areas of physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual development, in conjunction with the overall mission of Embers Academy.
