2 key approaches that together
create literacy for life
As we continue to explore letters and words and make use of our on-site library, we encourage children to grow a love of literacy, enjoying stories, and rhymes. We use the “Handwriting Without Tears” approach to build a solid foundation for writing, along with “Jolly Phonics” for phonetic awareness and reading. By blending these two programs, your child’s skills progress quickly as their vocabulary explodes.
For every theme we present, children discover real-world connections in ways that are relevant and understandable. Grasping the bigger picture of the topic they are learning requires evolved thinking and new cognitive skills. Each activity in our Upstream curriculum is multi-faceted, involves observation, and discernment. Children have fully absorbed learning and understand the “why,” a life skill that supports innate motivation and empathy.

more time outside means better attention in the classroom
Gardening and exploring the grounds are lovely on sunny days. For the times when the weather puts a damper on our outdoor activities, children are invited to play ball, hopscotch, and more in “The Quad.” It’s essential for their intellectual and emotional growth that children spend time outdoors every day. Our environment is fully equipped for your child’s outdoor play, rain, or shine.

Personalized Notes To Parents provides peace of mind and updates on progress
We keep a record of every child’s activities, achievements, and accomplishments in daily journals and compile their work in a comprehensive portfolio. Your child’s learning plan is thorough and shared with you via personal notes from each and every teacher. It’s equally reassuring to know you can reach your child’s caregivers throughout the day via the Remind app where announcements and events are shared for the school!
This preschool is one of a kind. The curriculum, the community, and the care that is provided by this school is like no other around. We tried to find something closer for my son (19 months) but after looking at more than 20 different closer preschools, we determined there is nothing comparable. The staff are warm and love the children, but also amazing educators. We love our Upstream family and are so thankful to have them as an integral part of our child’s development.
The moment we went on our first tour we felt like family. From meeting the teachers, to seeing the campus, to the extensive welcome packet, all of it was informative and put us at ease. The family culture draws you in and makes you feel at ease, while the attention to curriculum and training of teachers helps you to know that your child will not only be where they need to be academically, but they will also be well rounded kids as they enter the world of public/private school after preschool. Thank you, Upstream Learning!
We have absolutely loved the entire Upstream experience! The teachers and staff are amazing. They take continuing education and professional development for the team seriously and it really shows! Such an amazing community.
My daughter attended Upstream Learning from the age of 2 and my son from the age of 4. The amazing staff guided and cared for my children every day when I could not be with them. Both my children were beyond prepared for their kindergarten year and continue to perform above grade level. I will never be able to repay Upstream Learning for the peace of mind they gave me knowing my children were safe and loved.
All three of my children attended Upstream and absolutely loved it! My oldest 2 only attended the year before they started kindergarten, but in that short time, they were MORE than prepared to start school, both excelling in school-straight A students! My youngest attended two years prior to starting kinder and WOW is all I can say! She is at the top of her class in everything, especially reading! The staff is amazing! So friendly and caring for your children, they are like extended family! I would HIGHLY recommend this school, you will not regret it!
So thankful to have found this preschool for my two children. It is so welcoming and feels like home. I love that it is locally/family owned, has Christian values and teaches what they need to know for kindergarten, and is character building. I highly recommend putting it on your list to visit when deciding where to send your child – I just wish I had found it sooner!
