Cherry is excited to announce our new Learning Through The Arts program for the 2023-24 school year. We look forward to developing our students creativity through art, music and dance.

We celebrate diversity

We are a diverse school community in which children learn to value and respect themselves and others. Children should be proud of themselves and their heritage, challenge bias or unfairness when they encounter it, and feel at home in our diverse world.

We are inclusive

All of the students at Cherry benefit from having the opportunity to learn together and from one another regardless of ability.  Cherry’s Inclusion Program is available to children who require additional support in the classroom from their own dedicated inclusion aid.

We are a community

We are a dedicated group of educators and parents working together to create a caring community within our classrooms and throughout our preschool. Our families are committed to donating their time, energy, and talent toward making Cherry Preschool a special place for all.

We learn through play

Cherry teachers plan open-ended, play-based activities and experiences to stimulate and challenge children to progress developmentally. Teachers provide children opportunities to interact with materials and construct knowledge about their world.
