We are a child-centered preschool that fosters the unique and wonderful light within each child so that they may shine brightly and share their light with the world. At Firefly Preschool, we welcome and affirm all children and families. We care for the environment, nurture our relationships with others, and grow our brains, bodies, hearts and spirits.
At Firefly, we continue to evolve our program to meet the diverse needs of our families and community. We recognize that every family is unique so we strive to offer program options that serve the broad range of developmental and emotional needs of children. Our programs represent our high-quality programming while being affordable and accessible to all types of families.

"My son attended Firefly at the age of 3-4 years and he LOVED it. Now he is 13 and still remembers the wonderful memories he had back then. We loved the structure, unique learning opportunities, family engagement and experiences they provide. Now that my daughter is 3, we are back because we couldn't imagine her anywhere else.
Joyful teachers are so amazing, always happy to see our kids every morning, and treat our little one and us like family. She looks forward to going to preschool each day, and I think that says it all!"
We believe that children learn best through constructive play, and we foster learning by providing a richly interesting and stimulating environment where your child can discover, explore, and create according to their interests. Through this constructive play, children are able to establish positive self-esteem, and a sense of accomplishment and belonging within themselves. We allow plenty of time for your child to interact with their environment and encourage them to form friendships along with having fun along the way!
Your child’s real-life Firefly Preschool classroom experience, combined with creative constructive play, plus a positive learning environment, will help encourage your child’s interests and strengthen their confidence through a lifetime journey of learning.
