CLUBHOUSE PRESCHOOL

"We have two kids that have gone through the Boys and Girls Club ECE preschool program and we have been absolutely impressed with the quality of education our kids have received. The staff makes challenging concepts (such as the water cycle) fun with songs and other games while the kids are learning all about the world around them. The teachers have been incredibly invested and supportive of our kids learning. Any kid that goes through Boys and Girls Club ECE will definitely be ready for kindergarten."
