Threes, Fours & Transition

children in preschoolLUMP is committed to teaching the whole child, to nurturing a child’s sense of self-esteem and to providing a learning environment that is rich in experiences. We know that children learn best by doing and we support active learning by providing materials that are stimulating and activities that invite cooperative play. We encourage our preschoolers to explore, create, question, try again and discover their world. Our emphasis is to give each and every child a rich and nurturing beginning to the world of learning.
