14th Street Y 2x2 Program

0

A perfect prelude to preschool, our 2x2 program helps toddlers develop friendships, master the routines, materials and activities of an early childhood classroom, and discover the joys of being independent! A lively mix of art, music, creative movement, dramatic play, storytelling and choice time, this year-long program meets from September-June. Children are grouped by age within a 4-6 month range. Small class size and high teacher-to-student ratios ensure plenty of individualized attention throughout your child’s first experience of “school”. Grown-ups enjoy the information and support our discussion groups and free parenting workshops offer, too!

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.
