The Young School @ Meadow Creek
For over 25 years, The Young School has prepared young people for their future through an innovative preschool education program. The Young School pioneered the “Cottage” learning environment for infants (8 weeks – 2 years) through Pre-K (2-5 years). Children become part of a nurturing community where they are active participants and learners. The Young SchoolSM’s unique physical environment is the key component that provides opportunities for independent exploration and learning. Inspired by several internationally acclaimed early education approaches, The Young School has provided an invaluable start for thousands of children. Discover the difference The Young SchoolSM approach can make in the future of your child. The Young School philosophy: Child Directed Exploration At The Young School, we believe that children are active constructors of their own knowledge, exploring and initiating their own learning based on natural curiosity. Children learn best from other children, particularly in a multi-age setting. Teachers at The Young School facilitate children’s learning and problem solving by providing hands-on exploration and inspiring exploration and curiosity within a rich learning environment. By providing authentic materials and props, children are encouraged to explore freely. This child directed exploration develops confident and independent children. Teacher Learning The Young School believes that professional development for teachers is crucial to a successful learning environment. At The Young School, we encourage all staff members to continue their education by providing staff development opportunities throughout the school year. Parents as Partners Families are equally valued at The Young School. We believe parents are our partners. We strive to inspire our families to be involved in their child’s learning by providing opportunities to volunteer and/or participate in program activities. Each spring, we invite parents to meet with their child’s teacher for a family conference. During this time teachers and parents have the opportunity to showcase the developmental strides each child has made. We view The Young School environment as a child’s home away from home, therefore, we work hard to make parents feel comfortable leaving their children in our care. The Young School @ Meadow Creek is a center. We care for children as young as 6 weeks through 5 years old. We offer full time care. To learn more, please call us or send us an email. Please be sure to mention that you found us on CareLuLu.
