In 1995, Atherton and Wai-Kahala Preschools piloted KCAA’s new toddler program, serving children as young as 2 years old. This innovative program offers developmentally appropriate learning environments and curriculum that support toddler needs, and lower child to teacher ratios that optimize the unique learning moments throughout the day.
Atherton Preschool also offers three and four year old programs that encourage developing interests and learning experiences of older preschoolers. Enrichment Programs such as Amazing Athletes and soccer shots are also offered throughout the year as well.
“E Komo Mai!”
The early 1970s was a time of expansion for KCAA. Although the Hawaii Kai area was the main focus of development during this period, emphasis began to shift to the Windward area as well, when Atherton Trust asked KCAA to submit a proposal to operate Beerman School. The proposal was accepted by the Trust, and in November 1973, KCAA officially opened Atherton Preschool in the heart of Kailua.
