Preschool at Westside

The Foundations for Lifelong Learning

Westside School welcomes three and four-year-old students for a half or full day preschool experience. Our emergent curriculum is focused on experiential learning and is designed to foster the social-emotional foundations for academic learning.

With a long history of early childhood education, Westside is pleased to offer an enriched environment. Our students are empowered to take an active role in their learning. Teachers observe the spontaneous interests of students and guide them to projects and learning that reflect their natural curiosity.

Classroom learning stations, and whole and small group times serve as an avenue for each child’s social and academic development. In addition to their daily classroom experience, full-day students will participate in physical education, performing arts, visual arts, and world languages. Half-day preschool students will get some of the school specialties, but not all due to their shortened schedule.

Half-day and full-day options for 3 and 4-year-olds.
