From the Director:

"High Reach Learning develops our award-winning curriculum each month. This theme-based program promotes a strong foundation by preparing the early childhood student for success in kindergarten and beyond. The hands-on activities keep children actively involved as they learn to recognize letters, explore beginning sounds, understand number concepts and develop positive character traits." -- Excerpted from school literature

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

"All Peanut Gallery employees meet and often exceed the necessary qualifications as established by the State for licensed childcare centers. On a continual basis The Peanut Gallery provides on-going training for every staff member. The most important thing we look for in our staff members is patience, kindness and the love of children." -- Excerpted from school literature

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Peanut Gallery's preschool program is designed for children three to five years of age. This multi-age grouping promotes children to work within their own developmental level. The reasoning behind multi-ages is that each child develops at different rates. This concept allows child to move ahead in areas they have mastered and work more slowly on the areas of development they still need to work on."

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

"The Peanut Gallery firmly believes that communication is the 'key' to an early childhood learning program. We take great care in guaranteeing an effective parent/teacher 'partnership.' In addition to direct contact with your classroom teacher and center director we encourage our parents to be informed by providing parent information boards that offer current information about our learning programs such as ZooPhonics, Math Their Way and Early Literacy. Yearly month-to-month matrix schedules monthly calendars and quarterly newsletters are all tools of our parent communication process. Our open door concept allows parents to come at any time into the classroom. Periodically we hold an 'Open House' evening, which provides an excellent opportunity for parents to explore the center and meet all our staff."
