Early Childhood Education

The Early Childhood Education program ensures girls experience the very best in education from their first day until their last day of school.

Connecting play and creativity with foundational skills in literacy and numeracy, the junior and senior kindergarten programs enable each student to reach her potential within a supportive, nurturing community.

The facility is nestled between the Junior School and the surrounding woods, on the west side of the campus.
