How does it feel to be named Best Preschool?

“We have worked really hard to make the most concrete curriculum and a developmentally appropriate routine in our full-day preschool program that goes above and beyond and be able to offer it to our families without charging extra,” Executive Director Lynnette Lein said. “When our kids do their kindergarten assessment, they are rocking it.”

What makes Small Wonders' approach to kindergarten preparation unique?

“We focus on the whole child so we’re building them spiritually, emotionally, socially and academically,” Lein said. “Through our Christian curriculum, we’re teaching them how to deal with situations these little kids have to face. We also teach them to recognize different cultures to help expand their minds and think about the world outside of their neighborhood or town by learning about the U.S. and other countries.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
