At Laughing Butterflies Home Childcare & Preschool we follow a play based thematic curriculum that allows us to focus on development and progress of all developmental domains, allowing each child to reach their full academic success.
This curriculum not only allows children to learn at their own pace but it also provides them with appropriate skills to develop excellent social-emotional, communication and academic skills.
Our days are fulfilled with lots of fun and lots wonderful hands on craft activities that will provide your child with a great head start.
