Preschool

With an emphasis on outside experience, we have split our preschool group into 2 cohorts so that every child gets an extended nature immersion opportunity daily. Mornings are spent in the forest and afternoons are spent at the beach.

Our preschool program uses Creative Curriculum with a story book emphasis which provides developmentally appropriate experiences for children while supporting social-emotional development through play. We also emphasize language development, including Spanish and sign language. Classroom themes change according to student interest and schedules/lesson plans are posted.


Our staff: child ratio is 1:6
