The Gardner School is an academically-focused preschool for ages 6 weeks to 5 years old, offering year-round full and part-time early childhood education in a secure, stimulating, and educationally-engineered space. Our research-based program supports students' emerging sense of self while encouraging intellectual growth, exploration, and socialization.
Students and parents will feel safe and at home from the moment they enter the doors at The Gardner School. Our learning atmosphere includes a careful blend of traditional and Montessori educational styles, centered around curriculum-based lessons, child-directed activities, and structured play.
We are proud to have creative, multi-talented staff who are passionate about our students’ growth. Our entire team is dedicated to providing our students with hands-on learning experiences that will last a lifetime.
Our school features large indoor and outdoor playscapes, on-site supplemental enrichment classes, healthy and delicious meals in the Kids’ Cafe, and so much more. Parents especially enjoy receiving real-time updates through our parent communications app with photos, nap and feeding times, and school announcements.
Looking for ways your child can explore and build skills over the summer? The Gardner School offers Camp Gardner, a S.T.E.A.M.-focused summer program. This 10-week program continues the school year’s academically-focused lessons with a more relaxed summer camp environment that includes creative weekly themes, fun visitors from the community, and exciting outdoor activities.
