Pre-K4

At Wesley Academy, we begin accepting students at 6 months old and provide an academic curriculum that intentionally builds the strong developmental foundation needed to excel as they progress into prekindergarten and beyond.  Wesley provides a low ratio of teacher to students in a Christian environment where your child can grow socially, emotionally, and academically.  We recognize that your child is an individual that it is our goal to personalize your family's experience in our school setting.  Our daily goal is to guide your child's development while partnering with you.  Generally, these are the developmental milestones we work towards:
