Experience The Colonial Difference
We focus on teaching the whole child academically, emotionally, physically and socially. Our experienced teachers blend preschool traditions parents treasure with modern learning strategies that prepare students for kindergarten and beyond.
We Play With Purpose
Young children learn best by doing. Our brightly colored and spacious classrooms are organized to accommodate a cooperative learning environment where students learn to be creative thinkers and problem solvers. Around each classroom are a variety of centers updated daily to reflect the individual learning needs of each child, as well as to coincide with a weekly thematic unit study. When children aren’t participating in a large group activity, or engaging one-on-one with our teachers, they explore centers for dramatic play, art, science experiments, building, writing, sensory activities and more. Each day is structured to allow for flexibility, and interest-driven learning.
We teach the whole child
Our mission is to teach children the importance of making the world a better place. Opportunities are presented throughout the year for students to volunteer and give back to their community in a variety of ways. Students also learn manners, as well as character traits like honesty, compassion, integrity and respect. Most of all, we make sure students know they are loved by their Colonial School family.
