Play with a purpose.

LIfelong Learners 

In our pre-kindergarten program, children play to learn: about new objects, ideas, and situations and about new ways to think. It’s also where they encounter concepts that prepare them for future lessons in reading, writing, math, problem solving, creative thinking, and social development.

At Seven Hills, play is carefully designed, set in motion, and guided by our highly trained and dedicated teachers. As a result, it promotes more curiosity, confidence, and exploration in our students. Most important of all, these fun activities instill a sense of joy, wonder, and imagination that lays the groundwork for a lifelong love of learning—and the earlier it begins, the better for your child’s success in the years to come.
