Prekindergarten (3 & 4 Year-Olds)

Park’s prekindergarten provides a nurturing framework and environment for the social, intellectual, and physical growth of our youngest students. Our program focuses on the learning young children acquire through play in which they can be children for a little while longer.

Our experienced teachers guide students through a curriculum that emphasizes hands-on activities, imagination, self-help, and kindergarten readiness skills. Students also participate in art, music, physical education, and library. A lifetime love of learning starts here in a caring, stimulating environment where children have the freedom to explore, grow at different paces, and flourish.

Housed in a bright and airy bungalow, students enjoy a luxury of child-centered space, including learning centers, a group gathering space, a kitchen/art room, a large activity room, and a resting room. This ample physical space supports Park’s strong commitment to giving children the freedom to explore their own potential and satisfy their curiosity. Ample time is spent at play and exploring Park’s beautiful campus.

Prekindergarten students participate in school-wide events and use school-wide facilities, including the art studios. They learn to treat others with consideration, courtesy, and kindness. The spontaneity, lack of self-consciousness, and exuberance of childhood meld powerfully with the depth and breadth of challenges given to children, forging a synergy of joy and growth.
