Early Childhood Program

Students who attend Pre-K are more likely to succeed in school, graduate high school, and go to college.

Better Beginnigs

At Cityscape Schools, we are committed to providing an Early Childhood program that provides stimulating and foundational learning experiences for our students and prepares them to be Kindergarten ready.

Our program implements research-based socio-emotional health development and developmentally appropriate practices to help our young students become independent and inquiring learners. The Pre-K teachers plan purposeful and playful activities to target the skills students need the most help with in order to help them develop and be academically prepared for the next grade level.
