Little Orchard Preschool and Family Enrichment

Little Orchard Preschool and Family Enrichment Banner

At Little Orchard Preschool & Family Enrichment, we strive to build a meaningful foundation for kids and families to grow and learn.

Our Discovery Zone preschool program facilitates learning through play-based interactions and hands-on projects that are directed by each child’s interests and abilities. We foster each child’s intellectual, social and emotional development.

Our family enrichment classes focus on growing together as a family. Parent-child classes and multi-generational events will bridge the gap between performing as individuals and learning from one another.
