Early Childhood

Our Early Childhood Program is an extension of the family experience; a step between home and formal schooling.

The day’s activities unfold in an unhurried way with each day following the same rhythm, giving the child a sense of security and consistency. The program is based on the understanding that young children learn primarily through imitation and play.

Our preschool and kindergarten teachers focus on fostering the small child’s imagination and creativity through storytelling, music, outdoor play and artistic activities. Early academic foundations are formed through these activities. As just a few examples, beeswax modeling cultivates small motor skills, puppetry helps children develop memory and language acuity, and nature walks increase large motor abilities and scientific curiosity. The sharing of practical activities such as snack preparation and clean up starts the child on the path toward personal responsibility and respect for others.
