Numbers and letters are well covered but Firefly Preschool provides so much more than that: science centers, emotional intelligence, cultures and holidays, and the list goes on and on. I was so pleased with the experience that it was an easy decision to send my second child here as well. Firefly was a wonderful way for my kids to start their school journey.  

Mission Statement

We are a child centered preschool that fosters the unique and wonderful light inside 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.
