Our Approach

Personal Development

At the Stanley Pre-School, class size is limited by design. We maintain a 5:1 child-teacher ratio for the youngest children, and a 9:1 ratio for the older children.

Each day, children are encouraged to play and experiment with a wide variety of developmentally appropriate materials. Outdoor play, music and movement activities, cooking experiences, and field trips (4-year olds only) are all important components of our program.

Parental Encouragement

Communication between school and home is considered vital — parents receive weekly newsletters from teachers, as well as a monthly newsletter from the Director.

There are two school-wide parent-teacher conferences: a fall conference (last week of November, first two weeks of December), and a spring conference (in April).
