Adults & Children in Trust (ACT) Preschool


ACT full-time preschool provides children the opportunity to deepen their natural curiosity, their social maturity, and their skill-building for Kindergarten. A close group experience (5:1 child-teacher ratio) fosters teamwork and friendships. Teacher-led activities include art, music, blocks, drama, stories, cooking, gardening, and imaginative play, incorporating developmentally-appropriate early literacy and math skills. The Cathedral's country-like 11-acre oasis is a majestic setting, and field trips introduce exploration of the larger community.

For a gentle introduction to the world of school, ACT provides one-to-one classes for children 9 months through 33 months old and 2- and 3-day nursery programs for 2 and 3 year olds, all of which share the play-based, skill-building experience that teaches young people to love learning.
