Quarton Preschool is a half-day, play-based program for children ages 3 and 4. Children learn and explore in an age-appropriate and engaging environment. The curriculum covers many different areas of development: physical; cognitive; language, communication and literacy; interpersonal skills and relationships; creative arts; dramatic play; and construction.
