Columbus Preschool

0

Columbus Preschool is a learning environment that nurtures and respects the different gifts and variety in learning styles that each child brings to the classroom community. The school's philosophy is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to education, where teachers respect each child individually and help them be the authors of their own learning. Active, expressive experiences are emphasized and brought to life through an emergent curriculum. The teachers serve as researchers and partners in the child’s experiences, molding curriculum based on the group’s and individual’s interests and natural curiosities.

The teachers work to provide learning experiences across all domains–language, reading, math, and gross and fine motor development. By allowing the children to assert their interests and explore subjects in deep ways, the teachers help encourage students to pursue their passions and develop love for learning.

Downtown Little School

0

Downtown Little School believes that the role of the preschool is to encourage a child’s sense of wonder, active imagination, ability to relate to other people, willingness to try new things, drive to explore, independence, and natural, unhurried love of learning.

Downtown Little School has been on Dutch Street in the heart of the Financial District since 1999. While the school has constantly evolved during this time, it has remained committed to its belief in the enduring value of play. Children and child development have stayed the same, but societal pressures on both parents and children have intensified. As skills that used to be taught in first grade are expected of younger and younger children, it becomes more crucial to remember the value of play.

The dedicated and professional teachers make the school a special place. Teachers stay on staff for many years. The school directors are highly involved in classroom life and know each child and family well.
