The Mount Vernon Preschool
Mount Vernon’s youngest learners are curious, strong and competent. Fostering each child’s natural interests, teachers challenge students through hands on, play-based activities to build a foundation for learning. Mount Vernon attracts high performing teachers who form relationships with and nurture each child. A thorough understanding of brain science, child development and appropriate activities is at the heart of the Preschool. On the Frontier, a natural park-like play space, students imagine, design and construct forts, tunnels and slides built into the hills. Drawing on the connection between brain and muscle development, teachers use this outdoor space to explore curriculum through play, creativity and discovery. Two-day, three-day, and five-day programs are offered for infants to age 5, with flexible full-day, half-day, or extended hours programs.
