Dynamic learning is an exhilarating (and sometimes messy) process as children explore and connect with the world. Early childhood is the time when children’s learning profiles and attitudes about education are forming. To nurture this, our teachers cultivate students’ natural curiosity and provide them with tools and opportunities to learn through discovery, supporting and guiding them along the way.
Serving students in pre-k through third grade, the curriculum for the High Meadows Early Years program focuses on literacy, math, science, motor skills, and social/emotional learning. Students are introduced to key concepts of our mission and guiding principles within the context of fun and interactive activities.
Through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), Early Years students inquire and learn in classrooms rich in literature and experiential materials. Students learn to identify components of the IB learner profiles in their own actions and in others, experiment with new processes, perspectives, and activities, and reflect on their learning and how it can be applied.
Our multi-age grade configuration for Early Years is Pre-K (ages 3, 4, and 5), Kindergarten/First, and Second/Third.
