Preschool eligibility – your child must turn 3 years old by September 1st to be eligible to enroll in our program for the fall.
Our Pre-k program offers children ages 3-5 an early childhood educational experience through the lens of Expeditionary Learning. Along with teaching kindergarten readiness, we teach our young learners the design principles, character traits, and the importance of service and adventure – all components of Expeditionary Learning. Our well-rounded program gives children a sense of pride as they learn through exploration and discovery.
We offer two preschool classrooms, with 12 children aged 3, 4 & 5 in each crew.
Your child must be 3 years old by September 1 to be eligible to enroll in our program for the that school year, . If your child starts our program as a 3 year old or a young 4 year old, he/she will have the same teacher for 2 years. This is called looping, which studies have proven to be an academically enhancing way of teaching. GVCS practices looping pre-k through 8th grades.
Our program enrolls children using a lottery system. If you are interested in putting your child’s name in our lottery, please call as soon as possible. We would love to answer any questions that you may have.
