*Morning & Aftercare available
Designed for students who are 5 years old by September or who have completed prek4’s program. The class is led by one teacher. Setting children up for lifelong success means educating the whole child. Applying a project-based curriculum, we bring together lessons from language arts, science, music, p.e., social studies, mathematics so students can make connections across the multiple subject areas. We foster each child’s inner-being by developing academic, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual skills.
Students develop a strong academic foundation and are taught with a “growth mindset approach” that allows them to make and learn from mistakes, dream big, and work hard to achieve goals. Students will gain exposure to global issues, public speaking, and learn various cultures through service learning projects, guest speakers and character-building activities. In this nurturing environment, children engage with the wider world, and learn compassion and empathy for other people and cultures.
The student-led curriculum grounded in Maryland State Learning Standards provides authenticity and encourages students to invest in their own learning.
