Each and every child is special in ways that we strive to recognize. These special qualities are the ones that must be allowed to flourish. Every child will be given the opportunity to develop in a creative and social environment within a safe and attentive atmosphere. Our curriculum is geared towards the achievement of self-expression in creative activities and will concentrate on cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development while allowing the child to have fun as they explore the exciting world around them.

A thumbs up testimonial from a Parkside Preschool parent

A great experience for kids! As we arrived from France in the middle of the year, we were quite worried about finding a preschool that would welcome our 2 boys even if they were speaking only French. All the team at Parkside welcomed them so warmly. They enjoyed so much of their time there,doing a lot of fun and various activities in a peaceful and smiling environment. I highly recommed!

Wonderful, caring, nurturing environment. Our son has had a remarkable experience at Parkside, and as parents so have we. There are strong bonds between the teachers, terrific lines of communication between the teachers and the parents. As a parent I am going to miss the Parkside community once our son goes to kindergarten.

Incredibly happy we made the decision to send our 3 year old twins to Parkside! The staff is wonderful and go above and beyond to give the kids a fun-filled experience with so much variety in what they do. Lots of creative art projects. I expected the transition from their old daycare to this new preschool to be tough, but our boys loved Parkside from basically day one. Also, quite affordable.
