Early Childhood


Our program is especially designed to meet the needs of three to six year-olds, fostering security, independence and self-confidence. Because the materials and activities are sequential in nature, and build upon previous experience, they are of maximum benefit to children who start the program at age three and continue to the end of their Kindergarten year. Therefore we strongly encourage families to make a three-year commitment.

Some of the activities that your child will explore include:

Practical Life Exercises

Develops skills and self-sufficiency in everyday situations

Sensorial Activities

Broadens and refine sense perceptions

Language Activities

Nourishes your child’s vocabulary, self-expression and reading and writing skills

Mathematics Activities

Creates a foundation of numbers and their symbols and moves on to more complex functions

Cultural Activities

Deepens awareness of zoology, botany, geography and world cultures

Art Activities

Develops a variety of important basic skills as they foster creative expression

Music Program

The Orff music program promotes a variety of singing, instrument playing, creative movement and rhythmic or locomotor activities. This relaxed, informal atmosphere, known as the Music Room, is also conducive to quiet listening where you child will experience story telling, poetry writing, music composition and dramatic enactments, all of which play an important part in the rich cultural and creative life of the school.
