Because preschool lays the foundation of learning, we offer a child-centered program that fosters creativity and growth through hands-on learning. Lessons learned in preschool stay with students throughout life.
Our preschool students are engaged through activities that encourage social and emotional growth, gross-motor skills, fine-motor skills, and the exploration of language and expression through art, dramatic play, and centers. Each day students have ample time to learn through play and activities are often tailored to the interests of the children. Our program is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach which is an Italian early childhood philosophy.
How is NPES's Preschool Unique?
[On the last day of school] I’m going to miss being a day family! --Phoebe
I like my teachers. I give them hugs sometimes. They are nice. I love them. When I see them I bounce on their tummies. I love them. –Aidan
Kids should come to this preschool, because you learn a lot of stuff. You learn how to write letters. You get to write in your journal. You get to draw stuff. You get to keep your journal. --Jake
We do yoga. We put our mats down on the floor and we do yoga. I like it, because we get to use the tickle bowl. Yoga is fun! --AJ
