The Little Dragons Program
Our Little Dragons Program is designed for children ages 3, 4 & 5 years of age. We offer 2 classes per week. Our Little Dragons Program is a detailed curriculum that focuses on improving preschool-age children’s basic motor and listening skills.

They will become better students in school, better listeners at home, and more ambitious towards the future. We believe that the time between the ages of three and five are the most important years of a child’s development. Our program will enhance positive development in a fun and motivating way.
