Pre-Kindergarten

The Walsingham Academy Preschool program is a developmentally appropriate program that provides a model of education that is experienced-based, interdisciplinary, and collaborative. There is an emphasis on educating the whole child - the intellectual, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual aspects of each person. One of the most important organizing principles of education is that in order for children to learn in school and to become lifelong learners, they must interact with their environment (people, places, and things) and interpret their experience.For students in the Walsingham preschool program, there is an emphasis on in-depth investigations, investigations that require children to explore areas of literacy, math, science, and social studies. Because those investigations are connected to real life experiences, understanding and knowledge is constructed because it is authentic.

Children work cooperatively in their learning communities as they explore, investigate, question, predict, and research topics of interest. Instruction is differentiated to meet the individual and unique needs of each member of the learning community. Models of Writer’s Workshop, Reader’s Workshop, and Math Workshop are fully implemented, and provide an authentic, predictable structure and framework that enables children to engage in reading and writing and concepts of numeracy daily.

Walsingham Academy is committed to working with parents to provide a developmentally appropriate program for all children.
