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.

Parent Reviews

”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!
