School Notes

Hanna Perkins School is a private, non-profit play-based preschool and state-chartered kindergarten focused on healthy emotional development and emotional intelligence.Children learn all the academic fundamentals you'd expect. Plus they learn to manage themselves and the complex social situations of daily life while playing, learning and having fun in a nurturing environment of trust and mutual respect.
It's a school for all children:
  • Those who are developing typically;
  • Those who are struggling with some aspect of development, from getting along with others to sitting still and completing activities to toilet mastery;
  • Those who have experienced a major disruption such as adoption, divorce or extended serious illness in the family. 
Parents seek out our school as much for themselves as for their children. Some want support and help in being a parent; others are looking for increased involvement in their child`s first school experience. Still others place a high value on the central role of emotional intelligence in preparing their young child for success both in school and life.

Hanna Perkins School offers a developmentally appropriate / emergent curriculum that promotes independence, self esteem, internal controls, and pleasure in learning.
Teachers work closely with parents and child development specialists to provide the foundation young children need to develop confidence, enjoy relationships and become life long learners. 
Graduates of the kindergarten program are well prepared to excel in first grade in both public and private schools.
