Children ages 3-6 years old begin developing important skills that are fundamental to all learning: concentration, a sense of order, coordination, confidence, and independence.
Children have the capability to learn quickly and almost effortlessly through activity; they are encouraged to be sensorial explorers, learning through the engagement of their senses. Our classrooms offer a wide variety of hands-on activities and materials designed to meet each child’s individual needs and periods of readiness. Children’s House students are free to work independently within a structured environment, doing real activities with an intelligent purpose.
Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students work and learn together. Children receive small group and one-on-one lessons in core subjects. Each student reads one-on-one with a teacher each day for at least 15 minutes. Children plan out their day to begin practicing time management. Special attention is paid to the natural world with observation and care of plants and animals, outdoor play and exploration, and opportunities for gardening.
