Colonial House Preschool

Consider a preschool that blends the latest philosophies and offers a... multifaceted program that mirrors its diverse community. Consider a school environment that brings out the best feelings in your child? reminiscent of its small town charm or the simple comfort of your child's home. Consider your young child being skillfully guided through their day with the use of past values and contemporary instruction. Consider your child growing, reaching, and wanting to explore more in their use of music, language and art? We have. The Colonial House Preschool is growing up. Consider growing with us. Founded in the fall of 2000, Colonial House Preschool was the dream of early childhood educator, Joanna Hawkins. Colonial House Preschool was formed to not only create a unique environment for young children but to challenge the surrounding community of educators: it creates a safe and imaginative educational environment for children two through six years of age. Colonial House ideals are based on the mixed-age classroom where students can learn from each other. Although traditional age-based classrooms serve well for most, we, at Colonial House, feel that a child can experience so much more during the process of education while being a mentor or mentee. Today, Colonial House has grown into a multifaceted program, rich in diversity with a passion for creativity within our programming. While tradition can be learned from, Colonial House pushes towards educational opportunities not readily available to most. The early mixed-age classrooms have grown into center-based environments that foster independence, self-reliance and instill a love for learning in a nurturing environment. The teachers at Colonial House comprise a wide cross section from our local community and beyond, bringing with them highly educated backgrounds and passion from their own life experiences. The creativity and the drive can be seen from the teachers at Colonial House, as each and every child is considered a unique part of our very special community. Colonial House serves Preschool aged children from two to six years of age with half to Full Day options. At the core of the program is our Pre-K mixed aged classroom with options to attend two, three or five days. The children in the Pre-K program, regardless of the days they attend have access to all of our Centers that are listed below. The center based classroom works on a four-week rotation to create a balance in their educational needs. We also offer a T.K. program that ensures the readiness of your child for their first experience in Kindergarten. Limited in size, this program exposes your child to Kindergarten level work in our small group environment while letting the child indicate their pace. Through out the year, the Pre-K and T.K. children participate in a number of local walking field trips. These trips are always educational in material and a fun way to learn about their community. Colonial House serves toddlers with our First Year’s program starting at age two. This program is a wonderful introduction to the classroom environment for the child just leaving the nest or the seasoned independent child ready for a Full Day. We work closely with First Year’s students and parents to ensure they transition well to their new environment, as each and every child is considered a unique part of our very special community.
