In order to best accommodate the needs of our young families, Highlands offers part and full-time preschool schedules:

Our preschool curriculum emphasizes a holistic approach and is designed to build the spiritual, social-emotional, physical, and cognitive development of the individual child according to God’s specific plan.
Theme-based units are combined with A Beka Book curriculum to provide learning experiences that promote character development while building on the academic foundation of literacy and mathematical skills through hands-on learning activities.
