Preschool is a special beginning to a lifetime of learning. Our young students learn phonics and math in fun ways, in addition to developing socially and creatively in a disciplined environment.
A Beka Curriculum is the foundation of our Pre-School and Pre- Kindergarten program at VCA. The bright, eye-catching books and materials provide an enjoyable educational foundation and inspire a desire to learn more.
You will have the opportunity to be an important part of your preschooler’s education through volunteering in the classroom, chaperoning field trips and attending special events
