The West Hill School (Preschool)

The West Hill School offers pre-school age children a safe and nurturing environment that encourages a life-long celebration of learning.
Through our rich and varied curriculum, balanced with play and multisensory academic instruction, the children explore and satisfy their curiosities while developing their cognitive, social/emotional, and physical skills.
Children experience and practice the self-regulation skills of careful listening and focus and attention that promote school readiness.
Through activities that reinforce the development of empathy and emotion management, children learn to build friendships and successful interpersonal relationships.
It is our goal that each child progresses to kindergarten with the tools to achieve a balanced education that promotes self-confidence, joy of discovery, pride in accomplishment, and respect for differences in our school, our community, and our world.
