Nitty Gritty Preschool offers activities that  promote early learning and a strong kindergarten readiness.  We focus on the developmental needs of all children and structure our environment with respect to each child's particular learning style.  The environment is rich in materials young children require to grow physically, emotionally and intellectually.  We strive to provide children with a positive, non-pressured, non-judgmental early school experience that has opportunity to explore and discover in all areas of development.
