At Epworth Preschool, we believe in a child-centered approach which encourages group and individual discovery and learning. We teach readiness skills at age-appropriate levels through hands-on activities and open-ended projects. Our qualified teaching staff provides a well-rounded program which considers the developmental needs of the child in the areas of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth.

*All staff members are CPR and First Aid Certified. They have  had background and reference checks, and meet all staff requirements needed for the Office of Childcare Licensing in the state of DE.
