Academics

Preschool

Like every part of the day, learning is a balance of exploratory play and guided instruction.

A Great First Impression

The students may be small, but big things are happening in Greenhill Preschool. Young minds are experiencing education for the first time and learning what it's like to love school.
 
"Our preschool students develop enthusiasm for learning about the world around them. They begin to have compassion for others. They become willing to take risks and ask questions. They build academic skills that support the next step. In the process, they fall in love with learning. Our kiddos show up eager to start the day every morning," said Netra Fitzgerald, Head of Preschool.
 
Students love to explore and play in our amazing space. It's carefully designed to help children bring their ideas to fruition and include teaching kitchen, reading nooks in each classroom, Maker spaces, garage doors that open to the outdoors, and indoor and outdoor play spaces.
 
 

A Balance of Academics and Play

Through a balanced curriculum of academics and play, students learn concrete skills - including literacy, engineering, science, math, and mindfulness - all while having fun. The school year is divided into three project-based learning opportunities that culminate in hands-on, student-led projects, like these:
 
Kinder Clinic: After visiting a local doctor, Kinder students opened their own clinic, using writing skills to register visitors, math to count bones, and science to understand X-rays.
 
Post Office: PreK students created a post office, all the while learning about the role of the USPS (social studies), cost of stamps (math), and delivering mail on campus (science and engineering).
 
Rainforest: Kinder students turned their classroom into a rainforest (complete with trees, vines, and animals) and learned about preservation along the way!
