Preschool Program

Preschool is for 3-year old children who will turn 4 during the school year.  Our Preschool Program is rooted in the theory that children learn best through play, with ample opportunity for self-directed choices. Deep learning occurs when young children follow their independent interests, put their hands on something, are immersed in a concept, and play out real-life experiences.  Woven through each child’s day is the chance for large and small group experiences, child-and-teacher directed learning activities, and indoor or outdoor gross motor. We believe this unique blend of opportunities provides the optimal environment for the development and growth of our preschoolers.
