School Notes

  • The GBSH children see the class site as their home of learning.  All materials, supplies and products are there for their use.This ownership promotes a relaxed and comfortable experience which creates independence and self direction.  Respect for each other is practiced consistently.  An indoor play area allows children to develop social as well as physical motor skills.  The Schoolhouse believes it is crucial for children to release energy and make physical strides in a safe, environmentally controlled play area.  The climate does not interrupt the promotion of these skills.

My two boys attend the preschool and pre-k program. I couldn't be happier with this school. The teachers are nurturing while promoting independence. Parents are involved, and most importantly, my children have developed a love for learning. Highly recommend this school. Indoor playground is an added bonus for rainy days.

My children had a wonderful experience at GBSH. They entered public school in the 1st grade with a strong social and academic foundation.
