The Little School House provides a learning center, play planned environment in which children are encouraged to explore and learn about the world around them. The Little School House creates opportunity to run, garden, and learn about nature in the beautiful country-like setting. We offer many enrichment programs such as community visitors, field trips, as well as music and movement group activities. Our focus is on the development of the "whole child". This is done through thoughtful creation of weekly curriculum themes. We foster language through puppetry, flannel stories, singing and reading. Through art, creativity emerges. By encouraging dramatic play, the child grows socially. When cutting, lacing and during outdoor play, the child can develop large and fine motor skills. Using manipulatives, puzzles and blocks we facilitate the child's understanding of cognitive concepts. At The Little School House our children are prepared for Kindergarten, socially and academically, through hands on "learn by doing" techniques.
Preschool is available at all 3 Little School House locations
