Preschool Aged Program

A Montessori- inspired pod between woods and sea, our preschool co- op serves children aged 3- 6. This program takes places at the Sou’wester Arts & Ecology Center and offers both part time and full time enrollment. 

Starting Tuesday, September 7. Mondays and Fridays 8 am – 5pm and Tuesday- Thursday 8 am- 3 pm (unless also enrolled in after- school which ends at 5:30 pm Tues- Thurs). Currently we have ‘preschool’ aged kids (3- 6 years old, who are not required to be enrolled in school) in our preschool aged program. We ask that all children are fully potty trained before applying. In a case by case basis we sometimes allow children as young as 30 months. 
 

We offer

  • Child-centered and experiential learning
  • Low teacher to child ratios
  • COVID consciousness
  • Qualified, experienced and passionate educators
