2. Preschool Program

The Beechwood School offers a Preschool program beginning with toilet-trained children 2½ years old. Children 4 years old by September are eligible for our pre-kindergarten program. Each class has a 6-9 month range of ages and is supervised by a teacher and an assistant. The curriculum is based on seasons, holidays and readiness skills appropriate for their age. The teachers write weekly lesson plans that incorporate the curriculum, yet keep in mind the needs of their students.

3. Kindergarten Program

A certified kindergarten program is available for 5 & 6 year olds. Our small class offers a high concentration in reading and math. The curriculum also includes writing skills through the "whole language" experience. We have found that our kindergarten graduates excel in first grade. Acceptance into kindergarten is based on a screening by the director, teacher recommendation, and age. Beechwood School pre-kindergarten students receive priority.

4. Summer Camp

This program also offers the child a chance to enjoy the classroom experience. Although the teachers follow a curriculum, this session is more flexible and more outdoor oriented than the school year session.
