Our Curriculum

We believe children learn best through meaningful play. Our play-based, child-centered program develops physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, and self-help skills while encouraging curiosity, discovery, and problem-solving.

We encourage youth to develop positive habits, attitudes, behaviors by learning from adults who engage and stimulate intellectual curiosity. Our curriculum is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning. Weekly lesson plans are developed to give youth a balanced experience in four areas of development:

Social & Emotional

  • Receptive & expressive language
  • Social relationships
  • Self-regulation
  • Small & large group work
  • Identify feelings
  • Experience pride & confidence
  • Develop independence & self-control

Approach to Learning

  • Initiative & curiosity
  • Persistence & Attentiveness
  • Reasoning & problem solving
  • Cooperation


  • Gross & fine motor skills
  • Health knowledge & practice
  • Music & movement


  • Book appreciation
  • Alphabet knowledge & phonological awareness

Kennewick Clubhouse Preschool Parent

We couldn’t be happier with the staff at Kennewick Preschool.  They have the best communication and are always so caring.  They update us regularly on how our child is doing developmentally, socially, etc as well as just sharing all of the fun things they are doing.
Kennewick Clubhouse Preschool Parent

We have watched our son grow tremendously through the Preschool program. Great staff, great lesson plans, and he has so much fun every day.
