Twice As Nice Preschool is dedicated to enriching the lives of our children. Our goal is to create a warm and emotionally supportive environment where a child will be encouraged to reach his or her greatest emotional, intellectual, social, and physical level of development. We seek to teach each child that they are important and unique. Our nurturing and trained staff provide a stimulating environment that promotes developmentally appropriate practices with the understanding that all children have different interests and learn at a different pace.
It is our mission to prepare children for Kindergarten with Jean Piaget’s Cognitive Theory in mind, a hands-on approach to learning. According to Piaget, children learn through play and imitation. Our program includes a well-planned curriculum that is aligned with the Rhode Island Early Learning and Development Standards (RIELDS). Activities include a wide variety of hands-on experiences which include art, literature, music, science, dramatic play, gymnastics and swim lessons. Our playground brings the classroom education to the great outdoors. It features an abundance of space, a trike track, natural slide, mud kitchen, splash pad, musical chimes, hank drum, and many more learning components.
Twice As Nice Preschool has half day and full day programs. Half day hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30am-12:30pm with an extended day option until 2:00pm. Full day hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00am-5:30pm. We offer two, three, and five day options. The two day (T,TH) includes a gymnastics lesson, three day (M,W,F) includes a swim lesson, and five days includes both swim and gymnastics lessons as a part of our program.
