preschool PRESCHOOL OPTION AT SCANDIA ELEMENTARY!

Our high quality preschool classes focus on each child's social, physical and pre-academic development. We use a play-based curriculum allowing children to learn through exploration and discovery. Children develop independence and the necessary skills for future success. Children will learn age appropriate math, writing, music, art, language and science while making friends and experimenting with their growing independence. Curriculum outcomes and objectives are aligned with the Early Childhood Indicators of Progress. Classes are taught by professional and dedicated staff who have experience working with children birth to age five.
