Curriculum

Our curriculum, thoughtfully designed to meet each child at his or her individual level, guides our students through the full spectrum of early childhood development using brain-based research and developmentally appropriate strategies. In addition to classroom routines, academic and special offerings include literacy, math and science, handwriting, world languages (French and Spanish), physical education, creative movement, art, theater, music and library.

Parent Involvement

Preschool parents, like all other Kent Place School parents, belong to the Parents’ Association and are welcome to join community-wide committees, such as the Primary School Book Fair, Grandparents and Special Friends Day, Family Fun Day and Spring Fling. Each classroom has parents serving as class representatives, as well as numerous opportunities for parents to assist during the school day.
