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.
Our award-winning Pre-Kindergarten is for students that are 4 years old by September 1st of the school year during which they will begin the program. We offer families a safe, nurturing environment that stimulates the intellectual curiosity of their students. Our academically focused Pre-K program runs from 8:30 AM - 2:45 PM each day, with an option to drop your student off at 7:30 AM. Families can choose between two, three, or five days.

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.
