Early School may be your child’s first school experience. As they develop socially and emotionally, they need the kind of attention that makes them feel understood and heard. And they need to be part of a nurturing community. That means a genuine, trusting connection with their teachers and peers. Our goal is to meet our students’ needs in every moment, whether that's scooping them up for a hug or having a focused conversation. Social-emotional learning with differentiated instruction fosters a sense of belonging and safety that is necessary for students to thrive.
We have programs like Helping Hands to encourage student-to-student relationships that often last throughout their education. Our early schoolers are paired with Lower School students to spend time each month reading together, working on special projects and even having lunch! Our preschool and prekindergarten students also participate in school-wide performances and assemblies right along with the big kids. These experiences create memorable relationships and a sense of camaradie that begins in Early School and lasts a lifetime.
