Our Story

our story

Kaleidoscope Preschool was founded by teachers that have a passion for educating children.  Its development spanned more than 10 years as a team of experienced educators created an innovative curriculum and program that teaches to the whole child.

At Kaleidoscope Preschool we support and nurture your child and provide a safe, warm and caring environment. We cultivate strong relationships with our students and parents and work in partnership to ensure the individual needs of every child are met.

Our educational philosophy is that social learning is as important as academic learning. We provide a balanced approach that teaches academic skills with hands-on, engaging learning opportunities and structured and unstructured play experiences. We understand that exposure to the arts is so important for children and provides a well-rounded education, so we include special instruction in Music, PE, Spanish and incorporate art and library experiences as well. 

Children thrive in our program because the learning is meaningful to them and they are able to share their ideas and express their creativity. We get to know your child and discover their level of skill development and learning styles to ensure academic, physical artistic and social growth. Kaleidoscope Preschool incorporates monthly themes and we seek student input for topics that interest them. We combine interesting and fun thematic instruction with proven curriculum and innovative teaching methods. 

Our programs would not be successful without a strong, creative, loving staff, a data-driven curriculum, and parental and community involvement. Our educators, administrators and support staff are qualified, innovative and dedicated professionals who care deeply about children. We have a love of teaching as well as learning. 

Our curriculum is based on the Core Knowledge Program.  This is a spiral curriculum from Preschool through 8th grade with each year of learning building on what has been learned and then expanding upon that knowledge. The Core Knowledge Sequence provides consistency throughout the most important educational years and emphasizes use of hands-on activities. 

Without the parents, Kaleidoscope Preschool would not be the school that it is.  We ask parents to become actively involved in their child’s education.  We also foster relationships with the community through monthly donation drives, school field trips and on-campus visits that help children understand that learning plays an important part in a much bigger world.

“At Kaleidoscope Preschool we take play seriously.”
