THE PRESCHOOL & Pre-K CLASSES

Dolphins 5-year-olds

Sea Turtles 4-year-olds

Sharks 3-year-olds

The children are protagonists of the school–together with their teachers, they have built relationships, reciprocal leadership, support, collaboration, and joy. The children have transformed their shared experiences into resources and tools that support deeper thinking as they engage in rich conversations where different perspectives invite a robust exchange of ideas.

Every child participates in enrichment classes with specialty teachers in Music, Dance, and Spanish. They also experience daily explorations of different mediums and materials in the Atelier (Art Studio).

Each group has a separate classroom with a ratio of two teachers per fifteen-sixteen children.

The Toddler Class

Starfish Class 2-year-olds

Children at this age make relationships with teachers and other children for the first time. Their social and experiential context evolves in their environment as they connect with materials, other children, and adults. These relationships form the basis for the construction of knowledge and social interactions. Through the use of rich and varied materials, the children learn how the world works. By doing these explorations, the children make choices and express creative thinking. Working in smaller groups, the children have more opportunities to express their ideas and become inspired by one another.

Babies playing

The Bambini Group is one hour and a half per week where children and parents meet with the Bambini Coordinator. Children and parents engage in playful inquiry and explore materials with our Bambini Coordinator (9-10:30 am). The group is designed to educate and discuss relevant parenting topics. Some of the previous presentations have included self-regulation and early learning. The group is a valuable resource for parenting support & discussions and is designed to help prepare children to transition into preschool.

“Relationships with other people are the major process contributing to development. Children collaborate with others in co-constructing the structures of their minds.”
