Preschool

The Giddens School preschool program helps young children develop the skills of our three pillars; academic excellence and learning, social and emotional development, social justice and equity in ways that are developmentally appropriate and responsive to them as young learners. The program is rooted in play, emphasizing a child’s innate curiosity. On a daily basis, children are provided with opportunities to explore, observe, question, and construct knowledge from the world around them. Teachers work alongside students; they watch, inquire, and interact in order to learn more about what interests each child. These interests are built upon and interwoven with community goals to become engaging units of study. Lessons created in this manner provide an authentic learning pathway for children, where teachers thoughtfully provide the skills and strategies to investigate the world around them.
