Welcome to Artemis Nazarian Preschool where seeds are planted, little minds grow, and every child blooms.

In our preschool program, we believe that young children are unique individuals who will most benefit when they are allowed to actively engage in learning centers and self-selected activities within a warm, supportive, and secure environment. During this initiation and exploration, we implement a developmentally suitable curriculum that focuses on the development of the "whole child," and promotes age-appropriate learning and growth in all domains including social and emotional, cognitive and physical, as well as language.

A variety of learning materials, manipulatives, and activities enhance children’s growth in the following areas:

Language Arts

Children acquire listening and speaking as well as literacy awareness skills, in both Armenian and English.


In addition to being exposed to Armenian language, children are exposed to Armenian culture through celebrating holidays, singing Armenian songs, and dancing to Armenian music. 

Mathematical Skills

By acquiring mathematical thinking skills, children are able to think logically and solve problems by engaging in hands-on activities and manipulating concrete materials.

Science Skills

Children acquire knowledge about the world around them by actively exploring, experimenting, discovering relationships of cause and effect and of change and growth.

Social Skills

Children acquire skills to become socially competent and self-confident. They learn to cooperate, share, respect and become aware of others’ needs and feelings. THey also learn about cultural diversity.

Gross and Fine Motor Skills
