Diverse Kindergarten

Early Preschool

24 Months-36 Months (2-3yrs)

Our Early Preschool program serves children 2 - 3 years of age. The program incorporates a risk-based and play-based character development curriculum as well as aiding in the development of major milestones. Our Early Childhood Educators guide the children through the various parts of their day while encouraging them to build their language development and social skills. The Early Preschool program helps children begin the potty training process when they begin to show interest and empowers them with the skills to take care of their basic needs. We encourage children to build their independence by taking care of themselves, the classroom and its materials by further developing communication skills such as sign language, while additionally introducing life skills concepts.

Preschool

36 Months- 60 Months (3-5yrs)

Our preschool program serves children ages 3 - 5 years (start of Kindergarten). Our classroom layouts are inspired by many successful early childhood education programs around the world. With a home-like, project-based environment inspired by Reggio Emilia, enriching natural materials to inspire awe of the natural world, and adventure/risk-based approach for the outdoor environment inspired by Forest Schools in Denmark as well as Engineering play spaces inspired by Japanese architecture.


Our preschool curriculum uses a risk-based approach to education, with intentional learning set into every element of the classroom environment and every part of the daily curriculum. This is a play-based curriculum where children follow their interests and have access to most learning areas for substantial portions of every day.

 

Our Early Childhood Educators are there to support facilitating play and helping the children to learn to set intentions for their learning. Academic learning is woven throughout the classroom where children are able to explore math, science, art, engineering, and dramatic play areas supporting the children’s curiosities and development at their own pace and interest.
