Preschool & Jr. Kindergarten

Ages 3-5

Our innovative and comprehensive approach to early childhood education combines the best of Montessori, Piaget, Reggio, Gardner and Arts-based educational methods and philosophies with the purpose of nurturing children’s social, emotional, intellectual, physical and character growth. Our use of ateliers provides a unique experience and ensures consistency and in-depth learning is applied to educational explorations and artful play experimentations in both academics and artistry. By emphasizing higher mental function skills, scaffolding both right and left brain activities and utilizing Gardner’s MI theory, children are provided a solid foundation for success both in school and in life.  Kinderhouse is privileged to have talented and highly qualified educators in the field who guide and nurture students’ development. Our aesthetically pleasing classroom environment also complements your child’s learning and growth as an effective third teacher.
