The Preschool program offers a hands-on, discovery approach to learning that balances teacher-directed activities with free play. Young learners move through a stimulating curriculum that cultivates language and handwriting development and introduces science and math concepts in a noncompetitive environment.
Learning is further enhanced through a broad range of enrichment activities including: a new rhythm and vocals music program, an independent art studio with a full-time art teacher, an on-site library managed by a preschool librarian, an interactive science lab; a physical fitness room complete with climbing wall, game tables and more, a drama center and a hands-on kid’s café. Rounding out the expansive resources that CDCW offers is the Children’s Discovery Garden. What began as a modest endeavor has grown over the past 20 years into a series of elaborate, carefully maintained flower and vegetable gardens that bring children and teachers together to dig, cultivate and discover amidst the beauty of the CDCW campus.
