Home Curriculum


Our approach to learning at Colleenies Beanies Daycare & Preschool is more advanced than other preschool classes.  Children are able to learn so much in their first few years.  So, we take advantage of that time in a child’s life.   Some of what we teach is taught in Kindergarten class not in most Preschools.  Our teachers are dedicated to giving your child an advantage in their education.  We also have smaller class sizes, in order to make the classroom environment safe and to make it a better learning environment.
