Welcome! Our Preschool program offers our youngest learners, age three through Kindergarten, a quality education
in a warm and supporting environment
that is rich with opportunities. The foundation for each child’s future cognitive, physical, social and emotional development is built on a curriculum that is taught with intentionality by caring and nurturing faculty
. Built on the tenet that young children gain knowledge through their play, our hands-on program emphasizes engaging and thought-provoking activities
that allow each child to explore, experiment and discover themselves and the world around them.
At Tower Hill, Preschoolers engage in …
A dynamic curriculum taught by two full-time degreed teachers allowing for a low student-teacher ratio and the flexibility for individualized attention and instruction, including extra support or additional challenges
A classroom, rich in resources, designed to encourage play as the context for learning with a balance of hands-on, child initiated and adult directed play, guided discovery and sensory experiences
A safe, supportive and interactive environment that fosters a joy and curiosity for learning and promotes the uniqueness and growth of the whole child
Limitless possibilities to expand learning in and beyond the classroom walls including working collaboratively with other grades
Differentiated instruction based on current early education research gathered through participation in the latest child development studies with the School of Education at the University of Delaware, various educational articles and ongoing professional development
We are reminded through our work with children that learning emerges and builds on a variety of experiences; that learning is actively constructed; and that learning develops within a community.
