Smiles The Pre-school uses a program called the “Core Knowledge Preschool
Program.”This program for 1 ½ to 6 year olds is specifically designed to provide your child with the solid foundation he or she will need for later learning in kindergarten and beyond. Smile’s Core Knowledge Pre-school Program is based on scientific research about how young children learn, as well as research into the best Pre-school practices around the world.

We are excited to offer this outstanding program to our children. This brochure will provide you with additional information about Core Knowledge. We look forward to talking to you more about “Smiles The Pre-school”
