Preschool/Prek Program

“Are we forming children who are only capable of learning what is already known? Or should we try to develop creative and innovative minds, capable of discovery from the preschool age on, throughout life?” -Jean Piaget

Our Preschool and Pre-K Programs offer a stimulating environment where your child can develop independence, self-esteem and resiliency. The program provides the social and academic foundation that prepares children for the eventual transition to Kindergarten and later learning. Grounded in the Brazelton Touchpoints Approach, we respond to your child’s individual stages of development while helping you interpret and respond to his or her unique behaviors and strengths.
Our two preschool classrooms, one pre-k classroom and one kindergarten classroom are designed to allow plenty of opportunity for exploration, and our low teacher-child ratios (3 teachers to 10 young preschoolers and 3 teachers to 12 for both pre-k children and kindergarteners) facilitate lots of individualized attention. In response to the current COVID-19 period, we have reduced the number of children in the preschool/pre-k and k classrooms to allow for more space for children to spread out and keep physical distance, while working collaboratively in their classrooms.
Bright, expansive rooms encourage active and creative play, climbing lofts to build strong bodies and adventurous minds, child-sized toilets help build self-reliance. Age-appropriate games, books, blocks, art supplies and manipulative toys enhance motor skills and intellectual curiosity. In keeping with COVID-19 precautions, we have created individual learning boxes for each child with markers, crayons, scissors, etc. All sensory play will be individualized to prevent cross contamination. Twice daily children enjoy outdoors play on the playground, in our sandbox and summer spray pool, and on our open field. When bad weather forces us indoors, children play in our full-sized auditorium and gymnasium equipped with scooters, balls and tumbling equipment (keeping your child’s health and well-being in mind, we sanitize toys and equipment each day). Age-appropriate games, books, blocks, art supplies and manipulative toys enhance motor skills and intellectual curiosity.
