Piper’s Philosophy
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 | 6 weeks-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.
