Prekindergarten is intentionally designed to facilitate effective learning at this critical developmental time in your child’s life.
Our expert teachers work to integrate skill development in the emergent themes and play of the child. Our students play, explore, and create as they discover how things work, answers to their questions, and ways of communicating their thinking and designs to others, which often include words and numbers.
With deep dedication, we honor the many nuances of the social-emotional development of our children, both proactively through heartprints, our Friendship Box, sharing circles, and literature. We allow for extensive time and support of social problem solving and help to develop empathy in our students.
Our emergent curriculum means that when a child's interest is captured by something in the world around them, and they start asking questions, we are able to help them explore those ideas more deeply through research. They, in turn, develop more understanding of the topic, experiment with, test and refine their ideas, and engage in enthusiastic project work. The goal is always the creation of a project from the knowledge they have gained.
The Prekindergarten Studio is an exploration space that invites children to design, build, invent, experiment and create.
...and why does it matter to young minds?
PreK ensures your child will be a successful learner.
