At the heart of our Preschool curriculum is a deep understanding of developmentally appropriate practices for three- through five-year olds. We believe children learn best when engaged in hands-on, play-based activities that lead to a strong background in emergent academic skills.
Capitalizing on children’s passions and natural curiosity, teachers use a project approach in curriculum planning. Through large and small group planning and conversation, teachers take cues from children to plan individualized instruction to meet each child’s needs.
At Mount Vernon Presbyterian Preschool, we encourage children to engage, explore, and interact with the environment around them.
