How much is your preschooler learning? At Darlene’s Wee Care 4 Kids, preschool children begin their academic development early, with age-appropriate opportunities to explore and try new things. Children are divided into three groups, ages three, four, and five. Reading, pre-reading, writing, and counting skills are strong focuses here, as are gross and fine motor development. We offer math skills as well as early exposure to several languages including French and American Sign Language. Social development is key during the preschool years, and our curriculum helps children learn to appreciate diversity. We offer field trips and plenty of opportunities to engage with music, nature, and the arts.
Skills That Children Will Learn
Our preschool programs are aimed at fostering the joy of learning and allowing little learners to explore their environment and interact with peers to achieve emotional and social development. More attention to structure and schedule is introduced at this age to help children prepare for kindergarten, but don’t worry, there is still plenty of free play and age-appropriate activities. Our preschool programs encourage friendships, foster imagination and creativity, and helps young children learn numbers, shapes, letters, and colors — among other things — to prepare them for their formal academic career to follow. Our teachers are able to develop individualized learning programs to meet each student’s needs. To enroll your young learner in our preschool program, visit us online or contact us today!

What Families say
Testimonials About Darlene's Wee Care 4 Kids
I just wanted to let you know how happy and grateful I am that your school, your students, and your staff made my baby boy feel loved, welcomed, safe, and happy yesterday. All he talked about yesterday was how happy and well behaved he was. My baby boy walked into that facility yesterday and said “Hi!” and walked out yesterday so happy. He told me all about his day and was ready for the next day. The smile on his face, his whole posture was everything to me. I’m so happy I picked this school! I CAN FINALLY SAY MY BABY IS HAPPY, I ACCOMPLISHED A GOAL FOR HIM, AND GRANTED HIS WISHES WITH A NEW SCHOOL that he named “DARLENE’S VIRTUAL LEARNING SCHOOL.” Thank you! Thank you! I can say that I feel good and am not worried about his care while he is with y’all!
It is so important to find a place that you can trust. I have had such a great experience with Darlene. The staff is always helpful. They provide great feedback and communication. They are wonderful and have helped me and my daughter with a smooth transition. She is a happier child, which makes me a happier mommy!
For the past nine years, I’ve gone to work with ease and reassurance knowing that my children are in the best of care at Darlene’s. From the owner, Mrs. Darlene, to all of the teachers and support staff, they exude professionalism, integrity, and warmth while caring for my children. I am a single mother raising two young boys to become responsible men and having that extra support in their lives, enforcing positive behaviors, is truly a blessing. From the cleanliness of the facility to the stellar education and loving staff, I give Darlene’s Wee Care the utmost praise.
