Early Childhood Education

Preschool Program
Starting at 2.9 years old
Our Preschool program serves students beginning at 2.9 years old.  This half-day, play-based program provides opportunities for academic exploration and discovery.  Our primary academic program goes from 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM each day, with options for free before-school care beginning at 7:15 AM.  Families can enroll for two, three, or five mornings for the year.
 

Our Preschool class is full of energy, excitement, and discovery.  We inspire students to learn, while providing the patience and individualized instruction necessary for each child to grow and develop at his or her own pace.

 

Each day from 11:30 AM - 2:45 PM, students can also participate in our "Discovery Afternoons."  Each afternoon will provide our preschool students with the chance to explore a new area of learning.  Students can attend "Discovery Afternoons" each day they are enrolled in the morning program, but cannot attend an afternoon when they are not enrolled in that morning.  Preschool students are also eligible for our after school program that runs from 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM.  The cost of the after school program is not covered in tuition.

 In 2017 we were voted the Regional Favorite for Preschool programs in Wicked Local’s 2017 Readers Choice Awards.  Families consistently recognize, and appreciate, the ways that our unique blend of personalized academic instruction, social and character development, and opportunities for creativity combine to provide an educational experience that places a high value on maximizing the potential of each student.

 

Our teachers develop consistent routines that allow children to feel a sense of security and safety, while also providing the opportunity for new learning and instruction within the structured environment.  In our Pre-K program, students develop the academic, social, and emotional foundations necessary for success in our challenging Lower School classrooms.  We strive to instill in our Pre-K students a deep sense of curiosity, a strong desire to learn, and the resiliency to achieve long-term goals.  Our students are loved and cared for as our teachers help them to grow and discover the wonders of the world around them.
