Boost your child's learning with our pre-k programs

Since 1974, Hansel & Gretel Preschool & Day Care Center has been providing children with enriching pre-kindergarten programs that instill a lasting love of learning and will prepare them for future school success. Our programs are designed to bring out the best in your child through a combination of active play, social interactions, and teacher-created activities.

Top-quality curriculum for your child

Our teachers use a prekindergarten curriculum from Creative Curriculum to give your child opportunities to expand their horizons and develop their physical, mental, and social skills in a playful and stimulating setting. We also provide circle time activities, such as group discussions, finger plays, story times, singing songs, and more.

Meals available throughout the day

Along with nap times (for our full-day program) and afternoon activities, including art projects, music, and outside play (weather permitting), we also provide your child with hot lunch and snacks throughout the day. We also accept state-subsidized care for low-income families.
