Where the joy of learning takes off!
What if letter sounds and foundational math came packaged in journeys through the Amazon Rainforest and flights to countries throughout the world? What if the courage of superheroes gave hesitant readers the power to read? What if it only took 99 steps to see the sarcophagus or the Degas in the day’s lesson? What if your role in the 8th grade musical was foreshadowed in your original dramatic presentation in PreKindergarten? For younger learns we know play and imagination are essential to learning. At PS, superb Early Childhood teachers set children on a path of intentional learning that feels like play, so students delight in the boundless potential of each school day. Schedule a visit to experience the PS difference.
A child’s natural sense of wonder about the world is fulfilled through the joyful experience of play. Play helps us to build our mental muscles of creativity and curiosity and this is the gateway to all learning. When you are creative and curious the possibilities are endless!
Lois Geiger, Head of Early Childhood
Our teachers created PreK Airlines, a world class interdisciplinary, project-based curriculum which immerses students in the culture of various countries around the world for an entire year.
A child's play is the most important work he/she does each day. Our classrooms offer well-equipped theme-oriented interest areas that give all Early Childhood students the opportunity to learn through play.
We value experienced teachers leading our Early Childhood students. Among our 18 PK3, PK4 and Kindergarten teachers, we have a total of 242 years of teaching experience in the classroom.
We have options for extending the school day- from dance to art to piano to tae kwon do (and more!)- our many after school classes provide students opportunities to continue daily exploration.
Students are encouraged to express themselves and their creative talents in the daily curriculum. A wide variety of art materials are used in the classroom and with specialists in art and music.
Presbyterian School is our family.
