Overbrook Preschool and Kindergarten’s educational program is based on the principle that a sense of self-competency and self-esteem is the foundation upon which future academic success is built.
Children are thoughtfully facilitated in their development of self-worth and respect for themselves and others. Our early childhood setting provides each child with opportunities for hands-on learning experiences in a safe and challenging environment.
The curriculum is nurtured and guided by dedicated, professional teachers who encourage exploration and reflection. Children engage in meaningful play-based activities, stemming from their interests and abilities which are the building blocks for cognitive, social and emotional learning.Overbrook Preschool and Kindergarten holds a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Private Academic School License, certified by the State’s Department of Education. We provide a rich, robust early childhood education for young children of all ethnic, religious and racial backgrounds. The school respects and honors the diversity of its community.
