Caterpillar Preschool

Through both Spanish and French language immersion programs, children naturally develop or enhance their target language by engaging in age appropriate, authentic, hands on learning experiences.

Caterpillar Preschool strives to provide a successful learning experience for both children and their families by creating a community of dedicated individuals who value communication, respect, and growth. We come from all walks of life, forming a culturally rich environment with varying perspectives and backgrounds. We have a diverse group of families. Several of our families are English speakers! We also have children who may have one or both parents who are bilingual or native speakers. Some children are themselves native French or Spanish speakers.

Our mission is to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate, inclusive environment for preschool and school age children. Our focus is to provide an education experience which promotes each child's social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. City Gate/Caterpillar Preschool will provide child care that meets the needs of each child and family through collaborative staff, child and parents involvement. City Gate/Caterpillar prides itself in meeting the individual needs of each child, while providing quality, reliable and safe child care.

City Gate/Caterpillar Preschool is dedicated to providing a warm and loving family environment for children. With our small size we are able to give quality, individualized care to families at affordable prices. As we view City Gate/Caterpillar Preschool as a family, the importance of family bonds cannot be understood; siblings are encouraged to interact with one another, and we want everyone involved; children, parents and staff alike; to feel like they are part of our extended family.

We follow the creative curriculum, a research based guide designed specifically for Early Childhood. The framework of the Creative Curriculum takes into consideration how children learn and the physical environment in which learning takes place. In addition, our teachers bring their own unique contributions from their years of experience in teaching. You will notice Montessori, Waldorf and Reggio Emilia inspired ideas intermingled within the classrooms. Incorporating our monthly themes into the learning process enhances our program.
