Preschool Program

Fostering continued independence.

Growing learners in suburban Baltimore thrive in our Preschool Cottages. We support your child’s growth in natural, innovative ways, celebrating their initiative to think, learn, create, and do. A rich learning environment reflects our trust in children and their capacity for building relationships with their surroundings, each other, materials, concepts, and nature.

Our curriculum is inspired by Reggio Emilia to help children embrace their innate curiosity with confidence. The result is children who actively construct their own learning journey and build knowledge collectively through meaningful research and relationships, an experience that that paves the way to future success.

Program highlights include:

  • Cottages promote stability and friendships, as children remain together up to 3 years.
  • Curriculum designed to deeply engage individual and group learning
  • Emphasis on expression of ideas through project work

Classroom clusters create our learning community:

Twos and Young Threes:

  • Ages 2 to 3 with a ratio of two teachers to 12 children
  • Social and emotional development
  • Early literacy and math concepts
  • Sensory and scientific discovery

Pre-Kindergarten 1 & 2:

  • Two multi-age Pre-K rooms for ages 3 to 5 with one teacher for every 10 children
  • All domains of learning are embedded in our Foundation Projects.
    • Promotes research, creative thinking, and expression
    • Leads to meaningful application of concepts

Each Preschool Cottage also has its own Cottage Director who supports the teachers through training, role modeling, behavior, and classroom management. This unique role also gives parents and guardians another direct point of contact with someone who is spending time with their children, each day. 

Health and Safety

We follow guidance from state and local officials and health authorities to keep your child safe. A clean environment and daily health screenings continue to be an important part of our protocols.
