The academic program focuses on the whole child, as an individual and as a part of a group.  Children learn self-confidence and receive positive reinforcement when they are part of a group.  When children play together they learn: to help each other, to be a leader and to become a good group member, to share ideas and skills, all while they are continually improving their communication skills.  Play is vital for a focus on positive social skills and preparing for life's challenges.

 Berkeley Hills Preschool creates an environment that will nurture and bring out a child's full potential and still encourage freedom of choice and individualism.  The curriculum  is designed to aid in the development of a child's intellect as well as the physical, social and emotional skills that create good working and social habits during these formative and developmental years.
