Our Programs

The children we serve

Arista Preschool is committed to providing a high quality early care and educational experience for all our children. Our families are an integral part of our school experience as children learn from the community as well as from their classrooms. The Arista Program is creative and designed to maximize the children’s learning experience with age-appropriate activities.

2 Yr. Old Program

Arista Preschool

Our Two year old curriculum focuses on the beginning of social skills and independence. We foster this through stories, games and hands on manipulatives. We also implement Shapes/Colors, Phonics, Science, Literature and pre-math for a smooth transition into the Preschool Program.


We provide the two year olds with ample activities and space for their growing curiosity while assuring them a secure environment. Creativity is rewarded with confidence, the foundation for positive self-concepts.

Preschool Program

Arista Preschool

Our Three year old curriculum is based on learning with structured lesson time as well as interaction with teachers and classmates in cooperative learning activities. Our positive learning environment helps to develop their individual creativity independence and decision making skills.


Our cognitive activities include Math, Phonics, Science, Literature and Social Studies. These fun experiences are accomplished through our highly trained teachers who creatively guide each child in a personal way so that each child progress at their developmental level. The Preschool classroom is designed so that each child can feel successful, proud and loved.

Pre - K Program

Our Pre-Kindergarten curriculum prepares the children for a successful transition into Kindergarten. The Pre-K program is academically and socially balanced to provide experiences about the world around us while still maintaining a fun environment that encourages creativity and individual uniqueness.


The Kindness Curriculum teaches the children how to live and learn with others. Our Pre-K program includes Math, Phonics, Handwriting, Science, Literature and Social Studies, all done in an environment of fun, creativity and individual self-expression. The Pre-K program’s goal is to graduate children with a “Can Do” self-image and an excitement for learning that will lead to success for the rest of their lives.

The teachers are loving and nurturing and there is very little staff turnover. Many of the teachers have been at the school for 5+ years. The teachers are all fully licensed and keep their skills up to date with ongoing education. I love Arista and it has been a blessing for me. I need to work and this is an environment where I feel my kids thrive. If Arista sounds like a good fit for your child, I would suggest calling and setting up a tour. Best of luck with your quest to find the best solution for your family!



We love Arista. Our 9 month old has been there for 3 months and always gets excited when we get there. Her teacher is awesome, as well as the rest of the staff. They are all very friendly and caring. Just have to look at the happy kids and you'll know! I recommend it to anyone who's looking for quality care for infants, all the way to preschool. We will definitely be there until our baby is ready for kindergarten!

My twin grandsons Jacob and Joseph love Arista Preschool. The teachers are awesome, trustworthy, and very nurturing. They are learning a lot. Their cousins will be attending soon as well. The teacher/child ratio is great too. I give this school a 10.

My daughter really enjoys her classroom, but is even more excited to be outside. The outside play area is park-like. With a tri-cycle track, play structure, plenty of room to run and a drinking fountain to boot! I highly recommend Arista to anyone who is interested in providing a warm, family-like, fun-learning, environment for their child. I consider myself blessed to be able to send my daughter to Arista. Arista extends way past the 'checklist of a good daycare facility' - it's like extended family.

This is THE best preschool! My family has used this school for years, now and even before it transitioned to Arista. My sisters, brother, and cousin have attended this school and they loved it! Arista provided a great service to the little ones in my family as they were well prepared to move on to kindergarten. The staff (all the teachers and the director) take great care in making sure the place is fun, safe, and efficient. The classrooms are very organized, clean, and cheery with all of the students' projects proudly displayed. The kids always appear to be having fun while learning and building social skills; they actually enjoy being at school! I would recommend this place to anyone who has preschoolers!

We strive to provide the highest quality early childhood learning experiences in a structured, yet flexible, setting that fosters active learning.







Vet Visit

We had a special visitor from Franklin Ranch Pet Hospital who talked to us about how she takes care of animals. We even got to pretend to be a veterinarian and bandage stuffed animals. Once we took care of our animals, we had to take care of “owies” with the colorful bandage wraps.
