Columbus Preschool


Columbus Pre-School 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.
