Our preschool program builds on the social skills and learning introduced during the toddler years. Recognizing that children learn best by doing, we provide a rich hands-on environment inspired by the Reggio Approach which focuses on process versus product oriented learning.
Preschool students are introduced to letters, numbers, counting, literature and writing, as well as Spanish, American Sign Language and Music and a rich and rewarding art foundation. The Reggio Approach provides teachers the opportunity to use their creativity and additional resources in creating curriculum for students.
Along with academic development, a great emphasis is placed on developing each child's social and emotional growth; including the ability to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, as well as respectful and productive contributors to their classroom community.
Preschoolers may attend school two, three or five days per week. Preschool is open to students who have reached their third birthday by December 1 of the year of entry and who are independently and fully potty-trained.
