Our energetic preschool teachers are well-trained and qualified teachers who strive to fill the already hungry minds of this age group. The children will be taught the knowledge and skills they need to transition from pre-school to pre-kindergarten—and then on to Kindergarten.
We offer fun after-school care/mini camps/care during school-vacation days and inclement weather days. The concepts of academic success, health and fitness, building up good character, and developing leadership skills will all be part of what surrounds your child or children while they are here. Whether they need time to finish homework or time to relax a little from their school day, they will look forward to spending time with friends in the welcoming atmosphere of Skylands.
Our people and our premises set us apart at Skylands.

Ice Skating Potential! Did you know Skylands Center of Discovery and Learning has two fabulous indoor ice skating rinks? If your child wants to learn to ice skate, now could be the time! Or, maybe your child already plays hockey or takes figure skating lessons; how fun to know he/she can come to Skylands and work on their skills.
Interesting fact: We have learned through experience at Skylands that children who learn a new skill (especially a skill not everyone has—such as the ability to ice skate) grow in their overall feeling of confidence. Their belief in their ability to overcome obstacles, to succeed at something new, to use their bodies in strong and new ways, and even their ability to laugh at their “flops,” increases!
