Milestones is a preschool designed to enhance the young child's abilities to interact positively in the group setting. Provocative activities intelligently engage the young mind and promote the assets of friendship. Talking is highly encouraged, modeled and facilitated, as children learn the value of expressing their thoughts, needs and ideas to each other, skills that are so helpful for future school success. Our school values supporting community through positive, intentional relationships.
