small class sizes with
attentive teachers

Experienced teachers lead small classes and give attention to each child. We encourage every student to build their own strengths and skills at a pace that suits them. One-on-one teaching provides your child with many opportunities throughout the day to develop the skills they need and bolsters self-esteem and a belief in one’s self.

The Joy of Learning With
the Upstream Curriculum

Through varied approaches and creative programs, The Upstream Learning curriculum supports children’s growth and instills a thirst for knowledge. With a balance between fun and structure, children feel confident in exploring pre-reading, handwriting, math, science, and more.

an interactive
prepare-reading program

Jollyphonics is a fun and engaging approach to literacy based on the sounds letters make. Children learn actions for each of the 42 letter sounds. Using a multi-sensory approach based on phonetics, your child will learn to read organically and remember letters and words easily. Lasting early literacy skills is not only impressive, but this also spells life success. It’s highly motivating for children who see what they can achieve.

a secure and comfortable
learning environment

Surrounded by tall fences with entry restricted by key pad control, children grow in strength, confidence, and security. Exploring Upstream Learning Preschool’s cozy classrooms, natural surroundings, large playgrounds, and epic play structures under the watchful eye of our caring teachers, builds self-esteem, self-assurance, and confidence.

helping children develop
self-confidence and motivation

Children’s socio-emotional development is essential for them to be ready for the real world. “Love and Logic” is a research-driven technique that supports children in feeling empowered to take care of themselves and others. Going beyond following instructions, making decisions, going potty willingly, and handling their utensils, children are self-confident, motivated, and ready for the real world.

sharing progress and
feedback with parents

Our parents are part of the Upstream family and crucial partners in the growth of their little ones. With so much growth and progress, we like to keep parents in the loop with portfolios, journals and personalized notes sent home daily.  Announcements and reminders are available via the “Remind” parent communication app where parents can also request additional information or ask questions easily.

community contributors inspire
your child’s curiosity

We welcome guests from the community to visit and make inspiring presentations. The children enjoy the chance to meet new people and broaden their horizons, with visits from local reading groups, drama troupes, firefighters, police officers, hairdressers, dentists, vets, bankers, and more.

exciting events for parents
and children alike

There are monthly activities for parent participation at Upstream Learning Preschool, from Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day, to our annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest. Parents’ Night Out, Spirit Nights, which are held at local restaurants, and other family events are fun opportunities for us to get together that families cherish.

"Within days our son was happy to run into school 🙌 that is the best feeling ever..."
Read More

Our tour with Emily and Jeneffer was like no other. They asked questions, allowed us to ask ours, and gave our kiddo space to play and become comfortable while we talked. And then they gave us the facility tour. We didn’t feel rushed and we could see and feel the care they have for the children and families in their care. The best part, within days our son was happy to run into school 🙌 that is the best feeling ever. It is HARD to find a good center. But I can tell you that Upstream Learning is phenomenal.

I CANNOT say enough good things about this school. My little one has been going there since she was 1. She is thriving and loves the school, the staff and her friends so much. The environment is so warm, welcoming, loving and vibrant. The teachers and staff are beyond amazing. The kids are so sweet and your little will be surrounded by amazing people and other kids. Upstream is also a school that my own mother, highly recommends and cannot say enough good things about either. Read more...

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 family culture draws you in and makes you feel at ease"
Read More

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!

"Peace Of Mind Knowing My Children Are Safe And Loved."
Read More

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.

"More Than Prepared To Start School"
Read More

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!

"It Is So Welcoming And Feels Like Home."
Read More

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!

”my kids are learning TONS and are loved on ALL day long.”

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Upstream Learning. I have been a teacher for several years, so my expectations on it being preSCHOOL and not just daycare were high. My expectations have been exceeded though. My oldest has been there for the past 3 years, and my youngest just started in the infant room. Emily, Jeneffer, and their staff are amazing. My kids love going to school, they are learning TONS (my 4 year old reads like a champ), and they are loved on ALL day long. The teachers stick around (many have been there all 3 years that we have) which says a lot about the environment and that they are happy to be there as well. Worth every penny if you can get a spot for your kiddo!

“The perfect balance between fun, learning, and structure”

We absolutely love the new building and what it has to offer to all of the kids. Our oldest daughter is now going into the 2nd grade and is continuing to excel academically. I attribute a lot of this to the solid foundation the UpStream instilled in her, not only academically, but socially and behaviorally as well. Her transition to kindergarten was flawless and that was largely due to the outstanding Kinder-ready program at Upstream. Our youngest is flourishing as a 3 year old and is constantly engaged in creative ways of learning, while still having structure.
Upstream Learning is the perfect balance between fun, learning, and structure. You will not find a better program four your children anywhere else!

“the entire staff rock!”

We found Upstream in late 2014 after being very disappointed with Primrose. The Upstream staff was wonderful and caring. Our oldest has moved on to kindergarten and his younger brother now attends. Ms. Emily, Ms. Allen, Ms. Jilian, Ms. Tasha and the entire staff rock!
