Setting children on a path for success as they prepare for kindergarten

“Play is the highest form of research.”

– Albert Einstein

Our preschool children ages two years, nine months to six years spend their time in one of three developmentally appropriate classrooms. We have two Preschool designated spaces that typically include children from two years, nine months to four years and one PreK group consisting of our four to six year olds. Our preschoolers continue to learn through play and nature-connected curriculum that is designed to address all areas of cognitive, language, motor, and social-emotional development.

Our PreK students, who enter this classroom the year prior to Kindergarten are prepared for their fast approaching Kindergarten expectations, while still embracing a play and nature-based learning environment. Utilizing GOLD Teaching Strategies Assessment, the educators document the development of skills and growth, along with continuing goals for each individual child during their play, which are then shared with families on a regular basis.

We fully equip our students for daily fun-filled and engaging STEM inquiry, environmental stewardship, social interaction, and expressive art exploration, all through consistent routines and expectations. Be warned-they may not want to leave at the end of the day!
