The preschool's play-based approach focuses on preparing children for future academic challenges while preserving the quintessential elements of childhood: exploration, discovery, and fun. St. Anne's focuses on the social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical needs of each child by offering five- and three-day programs with full and half-day options.
"Our schedule is designed to offer an appropriate range of structured and unstructured activities," said Lower School Head Valerie White. "Working independently and in small groups, children will learn through hands-on exploration as they begin to develop their foundational skills."
The program is for students who will be three years old by August 31, 2013 and are toilet trained. Parents must submit an application and bring their child to a Crafts for Kids event for an informal assessment.
St. Anne's Episcopal School is a co-ed independent day school for children in preschool through eighth grade. Founded by visionary educators from St. Andrew's School in 2002, St. Anne's academic program prepares students for a rigorous high school experience. Located on 125 scenic acres in Middletown, the school is committed to the development of the whole child through intellectual, spiritual, physical, social, and artistic growth.
