Everything in Prep - our pre-primary program - is oriented to a young child’s specific needs. Our 4, 5 and 6 year olds take their first steps toward independence in classes that are large enough for socialization, yet small enough to ensure plenty of teacher attention. In an environment designed for comfort and flexibility, children enjoy a mix of appropriate instruction and activity.
We teach the fundamentals of reading, writing and math in small groups. Through creativity and socio/dramatic play, we help our students to develop social skills as they learn to interact and share. In a secure and supportive atmosphere, we encourage them to explore and question. Our youngest students benefit from the breadth of the school’s resources, including frequent visits to the library, the playground, the auditorium and the Lower School science laboratory. Physical education, art and music occur every day.
