Our Approach

We use a curriculum which fosters self-esteem, takes the individual needs of each child into consideration, encourages respect for others, and provides a wide range of educational experiences for the child.

What Parents Think

Starting preschool can be nerve-racking, but from his very first day at Gingerbread Cottage Preschool, Elliott has come home wanting to go back. We chose GBC for its bright, friendly space and education-based curriculum; we will stay for the warmth and joy we've found here. If you're looking for a happy and safe school with kind, passionate teachers who excel at their craft, Gingerbread Cottage is the place to be.
