Pre-Kindergarten

Pre-KindergartenOur Pre-Kindergarten program is created specifically for the younger child. Designed by our Early Childhood Faculty, the program’s unique daily rhythm is filled with reverence for the magic of early childhood.

A smaller classroom allows the children to comfortably feel a part of a bigger group and experience a gentle transition into the school setting. In this group the children are able to work on their new found love for social play, and continue to build their imagination and creative thinking. Plenty of free play both outdoors and in provides the child with the perfect stage for whatever their imagination can conjure.

Each day contains rich language arts provided through stories, gorgeous puppet plays, finger games and songs. Twice a week the class enjoys participating in a German, Spanish, or Mandarin Chinese immersion circle with our expert world language teachers. Through these activities the child continues to build his or her literacy and language skills.

The Pre-Kindergarten year focuses on encouraging self-care skills in the young child. The confidence that is gained through activities such as putting on outdoor gear or drawing gives the child a sense of joy as well as works on fine and gross motor skills. Each child completes many crafts throughout the year ranging from lanterns for our Festival of Light, making candles near the holiday seasons, felting wool balls or creating a gift for a loved one. The children also help prepare and enjoy a wholesome snack every day with organic vegetables from a local farm. Every week the class enjoys the vibrant experience of watercolor painting. The children thrive in this balanced and caring atmosphere that lays a firm foundation for academic success.
