Preschool & Pre-K

At Washington Kid Care & Learning Center our Preschool/ Pre-K programs offer a well-rounded, developmentally appropriate curriculum to meet your child’s needs. Our program “Learning: Center Stage” follows the NJ State Department of Education Preschool Teaching and Learning Expectations: Standards of Quality guidelines for good practice.

We strive to provide the best possible program for your child’s physical, social, and intellectual growth. Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Music skills are integrated into the curriculum and encourage creativity. We also recognize the value of play for children’s learning and development. A nurturing, positive environment that promotes a love of learning is provided and builds a solid foundation for your child. Our program provides the atmosphere for the children to build self-esteem, make friends, and have fun
