Our preschool classroom offers a blended program, emphasizing the importance of time in nature. Each week offers extended, outdoor experiences, either in the forest or at the beach. We follow the Creative Curriculum 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 studies change according to student interest and schedules/lesson plans are posted.
