Children in the Preschool program range in age from two years nine months through five years old. Our program utilizes mixed age groupings in a multifaceted, exploratory curriculum where childhood is embraced and celebrated! The preschool is led by a team of experienced teachers who utilize their vast knowledge of child development and early childhood educational standards to design curriculum that supports each child's social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and pre-math and literacy development.
The group size is up to 16 children with two teachers. The preschool classroom features a variety of play areas and centers. In the centers, children are encouraged to make choices and discover more about themselves and their world, with teacher stimulation and guidance. The play areas are set up to promote artistic, scientific, sensory, verbal, written, and mathematical skill-building. The space invites dramatic play, sensory play, science exploration, as well as writing tables, art areas, and a book area.
A typical day includes free play, meeting time, stories, group activities and projects, all of which take place in a multi-arts curriculum. Nature exploration, sand and water play, lots of outdoor time are an essential part of the children’s day. Morning and afternoon snack is provided by the school. Children bring lunch and eat together in the classroom.
