Preschool

2.9 years – 4.5 years old

(This program is for children older than 2.9 years old and younger than 4.5 years at the start of school year in August.)

Hummingbirds Nest preschool creates a holistic environment through imitation, repetition and strengthening the “DO-ing intelligence” through healthy movement, creative daily rhythm and experiential learning.  These aspects of the curriculum stimulate the child’s multiple intelligences into wholeness.
 
The preschool child is learning individualization through play, separation, their physical body, their senses, healthy defiance, ability for expression and the willingness to master an activity.
