(3 TO 4 YEAR OLDS)
With our KidSparkz curriculum we promote and growth the confidence in your preschooler.
As your preschooler grows they are gaining confidence and Our KidSparkz curriculum supports that confidence by providing activities that help them solve problems and learn.
We use structured activities and hands-on learning. We use physical activities to keep them healthy and active.
