Cuddle Avenue Preschool Program

Cuddle Avenue Preschool program for children aged 2-5 years old provides a holistic and child-centered approach to early education.

These programs emphasize hands-on learning, practical life skills, and self-directed exploration, in alignment with Montessori principles. Preschoolers are encouraged to engage in purposeful activities that foster their cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. Caregivers create a prepared environment that promotes independence, creativity, and curiosity, allowing children to learn at their own pace and follow their interests.

Our preschool uses specialized Montessori materials and techniques that promote sensorial exploration, language development, math concepts, and practical life skills, preparing children for future academic success. These programs aim to cultivate a love for learning, critical thinking skills, and a sense of responsibility and respect towards oneself, others, and the environment.
