We provide the practical experiences that foster a sense of mastery for our preschoolers. When children accomplish tasks of any size, they grow more confident and competent in their worlds.
Our preschool childcare program follows the Montessori approach to early childhood education and offers a homelike environment in which the child can follow their individual interests through engagement with materials that support motor, cognitive and social development. We encourage early independence and the development of life skills.
Our teachers are trained to facilitate academic growth and assess developmental needs and milestones while also providing support in developing social-emotional skills.
The preschool children assist in the preparation of their meals and snacks. The children also help plant, maintain, and harvest the onsite garden. All meals adhere to USDA guidelines.
Children in this age group have a set rest time with their own bedding on a cot.
Weather permitting, we have a set time for outdoor play and exploration each day.
Preschoolers thrive when they have autonomy and can use their skills to help others. We provide a social environment to learn communication skills that will help them build relationships and model their unique strengths.
"The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn."
- Maria Montessori
