A Blended Approach to Teaching in Pre-Kindergarten

Tower's Pre-Kindergarten curriculum combines a play-based, Reggio-inspired pedagogy; nature-based learning opportunities; Responsive Classroom; a multi-disciplinary curriculum model; and a child-centered, emergent lens. We believe children are powerful learners—accordingly, we provide them agency in each learning experience. 

In Pre-K, play is the vehicle for learning.

Multi-disciplinary learning combines writing, reading, counting, designing, story-telling, testing, problem-solving, questioning and communicating. 

Early childhood learning utilizes materials such clay, light, wood, paint, natural materials, wire, paper, chalk, cloth, cardboard, tape, costumes, puppets.

Pre-Kindergarten teachers:

  • Promote a love for school and learning
  • Provide a welcoming, safe, nurturing environment; a place to try new things and to take risks
  • Create a place to belong, a classroom community where we learn and practice to work cooperatively 
  • Inspire joy, kindness, compassion, and inclusion
  • Help children to develop confidence and independence
  • Develop and strengthen self-help skills
  • Build a foundation of interdisciplinary skills

Tim and I know that we made the right decision for our children and that they are in a happy, safe, academically challenging learning environment where they also have fun. Logistically, bus transportation from Nahant in the morning has been a bonus for our schedules!
