Preschool: A Hands-On Approach

Preschool: A Hands-On Approach

Ages 3 to 5 years

Children learn by experience. The Beginnings preschool approach incorporates many opportunities for our preschoolers to experience the world around them. From taking part in field trips and planting vegetables in our garden, to assisting in the care of school pets and participating in classroom routines, Beginnings students are always exploring. Regularly scheduled visits from specialists and children’s relatives who have expertise in various fields also enrich the curriculum. Specialty programs include Beginnings All Stars Athletic Program, Hip Hop with Carl and even Mandarin. Schedule a tour to learn more.


Pre-Kindergarten

Junior Kindergarten

Unique Beginnings principles shape a curriculum built on natural curiosity, imagination, and desire to learn. Students’ progress against individualized goals is shared with parents throughout the year.

Our Pre-Kindergarten curriculum extends well beyond play to include problem solving, working cooperatively, effective communications, and awareness of ourselves in relation to others.

Emotional competence is woven throughout the curriculum while students are also introduced to academic concepts in language, writing, math, science, social studies, creative arts, Mandarin Chinese, and technology.
