The Children’s Preschool enrolls three- to five-year-old children in a single, mixed-age class.
We believe our community is enriched by the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of the preschool’s families. We help children to build friendships, to contribute to the community, and to take care of themselves and the world around them.
We recognize that we have children at many different developmental levels in our mixed-age group program, and try to plan curriculum with varying developmental needs in mind. We take joy in supporting each child’s unique process of social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth.
There are many benefits to the mixed-age group at the preschool level. It allows for the older children to develop leadership skills and demonstrate by example for the younger children. In turn, the younger children are motivated to learn from their older peers. Every child is given the opportunity to shine depending on their strengths. Mixed-age grouping is a smaller version of what the real world is like. We pride ourselves on building a community of children that truly care for each other.
