Rooted in a play-based philosophy, CWP focuses on developing a love of learning and exploration, cooperation, empathy, and independence.
Our preschool classes for older 2s and 3s take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30 am until 12:30 pm, however Monday and/or Tuesday Parents Day Out classes may be added to extend your child’s school week to 4 or 5 part-time days. Teachers will begin to build your child’s skill set by introducing concepts and themes throughout the school year. Activities are generally guided by the interest of the students in the class which makes for an exciting school experience for your young learner. Children in these classes are not required to be potty-trained as we strongly believe each child and family should choose their own timeline and path to bathroom independence!
Our part-time 5-day 4s preschool program is a preparatory experience for 4-year-olds prior to entering Kindergarten. Children in this class will be introduced to age-appropriate literacy & math concepts through carefully selected books & games, group & individual play, and teacher-led experiences. They will also have the opportunity to continue to develop important social and emotional skills needed for a successful kindergarten transition.
In addition to all of our preschool classroom activities, a host of enrichment activities, including monthly science classes, monthly music/movement classes, a visit from the Baltimore Aquarium sea animals and walking field trips are scheduled throughout the year. Parent participation is encouraged through conferences, field trips and special projects.
