Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten
“Children automatically use their senses to become engaged in meaningful explorations. From water and 'goop' play to touching live worms in trays of dirt, children are building connections as they naturally observe, explore, question and negotiate with others to share space and tools, create stories and build dialogues as they delve into a scientific world.”
— Terry Dalton, Preschool teacher
A Special PlaceIn no other place on campus is pure imagination at work quite like in Seacrest's Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classrooms. Behind the innocence of our youngest students is an innate curiosity that our teachers encourage and inspire. Through developmentally appropriate practices and exploration, students are exposed to the basic principles of mathematics, language arts, and science. Sensory play allows to students to discover the natural world and foster creativity, while mastering their fine motor skills and developing the social and emotional skills that are so important at this age.
Teachers share with parents frequent blog posts about what their child is learning during the day. Physical education, Spanish, music, and technology are additional benefits to early education at Seacrest.
What Makes Us Different?
Unlike a traditional preschool, Seacrest is a true (and active!) learning community. With such educational diversity throughout the Lower, Middle and Upper School, our preschool and Pre-Kindergarten students are exposed to more opportunity to learn in exciting and unique ways.
Friday Flag Ceremony performances, our annual Holiday Program, Grandparents and Special Friends Day, the Pre-Kindergarten Tea, the Stingray Picnic, and Heritage Luncheons are all meaningful Seacrest traditions in which parents and students can participate.
