School Readiness: Work and Play


Hands-on, experiential centers such as building with blocks, playing in water and sand, dramatic play, working puzzles, creating things, and listening to and looking at books complement the classroom. Outside, children take walks in the nearby woods, ride tricycles, swing, climb the play structures, and visit and sing with residents at nearby Friends Homes. Small group and large group settings provide instruction in areas of interest such as science, music, pre-reading, and listening. Children can attend 3, 4, or 5 days each week, for full or half days.

Our Pre-K curriculum, Get Set for School, provides play-based instruction that engages young children and gives consistent opportunities for meaningful learning. Pre-academic skills in the areas of pre-reading, pre-writing and math are taught in an integrated approach to make learning meaningful and engaging.
