The Preschool Program is a preparatory experience for 3 and 4-year-olds prior to Kindergarten. Our 3 day 2 1/2s Program is another play-based, exploratory program for 2 year old children to spend 3 half days in our program. Our philosophy is play-based and we focus on developing a love of learning and exploration, cooperation, empathy, and independence. Preschool classes take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. for 2 1/2, 3 and 4-year-olds. There is a 5 day preschool program for 3 and 4 year-olds only, but 2s may enroll in PDO on Monday and/or Tuesday to get a 5-day experience! Extended day and enrichment programs also are offered to extend most days to 1:30pm (Wednesday-Friday) or 2:30 pm (Monday/Tuesday).
In addition to the classroom activities, a host of enrichment activities, including monthly science classes, monthly music/movement classes, a visit from the Baltimore Aquarium sea animals and field trips are scheduled throughout the year.
The preschoolers take walking field trips to the nearby library, fire station, career center, or park. Parent participation is encouraged through conferences, field trips and special projects.
Children must be 2 1/2 by September 16th, 2020 to enter the 3-Day Older 2s program, 3 by September 30th, 2020 to enter the 3-year-old program and 4 by September 30th, 2020 enter the 4-year-old program.
New next school year! We are offering a 5-day 3s Preschool Program. For more information about the Preschool program tuition, registration details, tours & current openings, please visit the Registration Page.
