Children’s House believes all children — of every race, ability, native language, culture and socioeconomic status — have the right to flourish in an inclusive preschool program.   The goal of our preschool is to provide a culturally sensitive, enriching early childhood environment with the activities, equipment and leadership to prepare children — socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically – for success in school and in the community.
