High Mowing School offers preschool and kindergarten classes on our Pine Hill campus for children ages 18 months to 6 years old. We offer 2, 3, or 5 day options, either half day (dismissal at 1pm) or full day (dismissal at 3:15pm).
We nurture the young child’s imagination as a great treasure: songs, poems, puppet plays and circle games tune the child’s ear to the beauty of language. Bread-baking, drawing, and painting awaken the senses. The use of natural materials—such as wood, silk, or beeswax—appeals to the sense of touch and engenders reverence for nature. Outdoor play, nature walks, and gardening allow the children to experience the joy of movement.
In our preschool and kindergarten classrooms, healthy social interactions are guided, listening skills are sharpened, and large and fine motor skills are nurtured to fully develop–preparing the young child for future academic challenges in the grade school.
