PRESCHOOL

Our preschool teachers are Teacher Althea, Teacher Christi and Teacher Cheryl.

Our preschool community provides a safe, loving environment for children to learn and grow — one that starts from the premise that children learn best when given the opportunity to freely engage with the world around them.

Regular activities include free play with art projects, sensory exploration, blocks, manipulatives, dramatic play, snack, circle time with stories and songs, tinkering with wood and tools, gardening and large motor play in our outdoor playground. Parent learning is supported by in-class experiences and monthly Parent Education meetings.

Multiage, Play-Based Environment

We offer a multi-age preschool environment both for family flexibility and because of the myriad benefits for both older and younger children. Our Emeritus Teacher Tom explains it here:
