2-Year-Old Preschool

Hand-in-hand with social learning comes language development, a key task for our busy 2’s! We enrich the day with songs and rhymes, stories and conversation, and build vocabulary as we splash in the media table, experiment with paint, and try out new roles in the housekeeping area. Learning is natural and easy, with lots of choices and opportunities to explore.

3-Year-Old Preschool

Teachers show the way by providing social models and support as children begin to negotiate and problem-solve. Special units bring learning to everyday experiences; a class trip to the grocery store sparks a host of new understandings about classifying, color, and nutrition, and sets the stage for imagination. Learning in the 3’s room follows a developmental model; children learn through real, hands-on experiences, using their curiosity to drive discovery.

4-Year-Old Preschool

In our 4-year-olds class learning is rapid and engaging as we prepare for the kindergarten year to come. Curriculum is strong and embedded; numbers become real through counting games and routines; letters draw life from songs, storytelling, rhyming, and a host of situational experiences. Cooking is science and socialization, as the fruits of children’s efforts are enjoyed together. Use of social stories promotes deep imaginative play, cooperation, and cognition. Learning is interactive, with plenty of opportunities for your child to explore and follow his interests.
