Notice to Clients COVID-19

The Spotted Zebra is Temporarily Closed.

We remind people the New York State Department of Health (DOH) recommends the following ways to minimize the spread of all respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing. If you use a tissue, throw it in the trash.


Preschool Program

Preschool at the Spotted Zebra Learning Center

Knowing that a quality preschool program leads to school success, classrooms are small and staff highly qualified - a licensed teacher leads each classroom. The Spotted Zebra Learning Center is inclusive of all children and includes programs for preschoolers with disabilities. Thus a Speech and Language Pathologist, Physical Therapist and an Occupational Therapist are on site to assist in the areas of speech and language, fine motor and gross motor skill development for all children.

Preschool options are varied for families - part-time and full-time.  So whatever fits your family's needs, the Spotted Zebra Learning Center can provide it.


The Curriculum

The Spotted Zebra Learning Center has carefully selected a preschool curriculum that is thoughtfully planned, challenging, engaging, developmentally appropriate, culturally and linguistically responsive, comprehensive and likely to promote positive outcomes for all children.The Creative Curriculum® is a comprehensive curriculum that addresses all content areas of the early learning standards- literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts and technology - as well as guides the classroom teachers in designing a preschool program that provides children with the foundation skills they need to support their cognitive, language, social and physical development. Unlike no other preschool locally, the Spotted Zebra Learning Center offers families a chance to monitor their child's progress with bi annual assessments and through the collection of data and anecdotal information. Parents now have a way to stay connected and in touch with their child and the classroom!
