Pre-K 4 Mission Statement

Selecting the right Pre-K can be a tedious task. It is the opening door of your child's academic career. At Bunny Bunch Day Care, we take our responsibility of preparing your child for Kindergarten very seriously. We understand that the upcoming year may hold many stresses as your child adjusts to a new school, teacher, and classmates. These are just some of the hurdles your child will have to overcome as they embark on their journey into the world of scholastics. While we cannot control the experiences their futures hold, we can make sure that they have been supplied with a solid, well-rounded foundation. We provide a wealth of knowledge and experiences to ensure that your child has the resources and knowledge needed to blossom into an independent, successful student.

Each day includes breakfast, lunch, and snack and also consists of structured activities such as:

  • Circle Time
  • Centers
  • Crafts
  • Story Time
  • Singing Time
  • Outdoor Time (weather permitting)
  • Spanish
  • Sign Language
