Developmental or Academic, right? Yes, it’s the hot question… but what does it mean? We created a blended approach that provides children with the best of both worlds. In the early years at Piper, children experience an emergent curriculum. As they get older and progress through the school, children are introduced to a traditional approach. We think, we re-think, we create, and we listen. We do what makes sense, and promise never to become complacent.

Parent & Me Classes | 4 months-2.6 years*
Parents join in a group setting with their child… kids play, parents talk, friendships form. Classes are divided into a 4-month age range and meet once per week, offering experiences for your child and opportunities for you to talk about topics of concern and interest. The Parenting Program is designed to allow you and your child to get to know the school, the setting, and the teachers, before transitioning into the preschool. This is where the Piper family begins.
Infant-Toddler Enrichment | 4 months-2.6 years*
Enrichment classes such as Music and Messy Art for infants and toddlers are also available. This is a great way to get to know our school, and begin your preschool journey. Caregivers are welcome.
*Babes-in-arms are welcome to attend any Parent & Me and Enrichment classes with older siblings until they reach six months old. Babies older than 6 months must be enrolled in our program and may attend age-appropriate Enrichment classes, Sibling Parent & Me classes or age-appropriate Parent & Me classes.
Preschool | 2 years-4 years
Part-time and full-time preschool options are available. Beginning with aspects of an emergent curriculum, children gradually experience components of traditional education as they progress through the school. Children experience the best of both worlds as we focus on a blended philosophy.
Pre-Kindergarten | 4.1 years-Kindergarten
Their final year is our Pre-Kindergarten program. Classes are Monday – Friday from 9am-2pm and are designed for kindergarten readiness. For more info, click here.
