WELCOME TO PRESCHOOL!
OUR NATURE AND STUDIO PRESCHOOL IS OFFERED FOR TWO, THREE, FOUR, OR FIVE DAYS PER WEEK.
Our programs are designed for mixed-age groups of children from 2 to 4 years old, and 3 to 5 years of age. We are a small school with a wonderful community.
The transition to school daily takes place between 8:00am and 8:30am. Our dismissal begins at 2:45 and ends at 3:00.
We operate on a quarter system. Tuition is due 6 weeks ahead of the quarter. The monthly breakdown spans between $990 for five days/week, down to $460 for two days/week. Summer quarter enrollment is handled by the summer camps to allow variations in attendance for family vacations without losing your spot for the next year.
We are passionate about early childhood education and view the child as a human being with whom we want to travel on a learning journey. Reggio Emilia educators are on a mission to advocate for children’s rights, but do not want to make their approach dogmatic, so we are also free to incorporate elements from other philosophies and curricula as seem appropriate.
We share this drive for advocacy, and think that children are constructivists, capable, and the protagonists of their education. We believe that our role is to listen, ask questions, understand before being understood, challenge, and share ideas and knowledge while we engage as co-researchers exploring 100 languages and developing projects as the negotiated curriculum emerges. We are responsible for setting-up an intentional and flexible environment in which the day will flow. We support relationships, engagement, exploration, asking questions, and motivation to deepen and diversify knowledge within laboratories, gardens, and ateliers.
