Our Young Preschool Program accepts children who turn two before the first day of school of the year they enroll and meets Tuesday and Thursday mornings. This program has been a wonderful addition to Rye Country Day School and serves an ever growing need on the seacoast for quality programming for this age group.
Our experienced teachers provide a safe and nurturing environment that supports growth in all areas of development and responds respectfully and enthusiastically to children’s needs and interests. Our child centered, family focused program understands that young preschoolers are developing a sense of self and becoming socially aware and forming bonds with both teachers and peers. Our program is nurtured by the cooperative efforts of children, teachers and parents.
Our classroom space is designed for movement and exploration. Through many hands on activities and carefully chosen materials, children have the ability to learn more about themselves and the world around them. Our curriculum supports both fine and gross motor development through activities such as: cooking, gardening, tweezing, pouring, climbing, running, music and movement, and yoga.
Each child is celebrated for the unique gifts they share with us at school and those interests are woven into our classroom culture and curriculum. As young preschoolers are becoming more self-aware they are learning to identify and care for others. Each child becomes an integral part of a community of learners whose growth is celebrated and positive self-esteem fostered.
Early Literacy, math, and science concepts are woven into activities and natural learning experiences throughout the day. We believe children learn best through play and all of our tools in the classroom are carefully chosen to build on a child’s prior understanding. Through observations, we are able to meet children at their individual learning level and help guide them towards the next logical step in their progression. We are also committed to developing an anti-biased curriculum and providing meaningful multicultural experiences for our children.
Our integrated approach to art allows children the freedom to experiment with a variety of materials and techniques based on their interest. Creative movement, song, dance, finger painting, and sculpture are incorporated into our curriculum on a daily basis along with an exposure to sign language, yoga and Spanish.
Our open door policy welcomes parents into their child’s program anytime. We are partners in your child’s school experience and believe, together we are better.
