ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

 

Here at Abney's Little Scholars Preschool our goal is to nurture little minds, we strive for all of our children to Excel and reach for the stars. A place for children to learn, make friends and have fun. We nurture the curiosity of each child so they grow in knowledge and are confident in their capabilities. Leave your children with us with a peace of mind and a feeling of assurance that they are safe, happy and well taken care of.

By reaching for the STARS the ALS preschool promotes quality in our child care and Head Start program. Our Program includes children and families from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Diversity is celebrated both inside and outside of the classroom.


Every day at Abney's Little Scholars Preschool our toddlers and staff enjoy activities and games that follow a research-based curriculum that aligns with DE State licensing standards and is designed to teach everything from letters and numbers to sharing and getting along with others.
