The infant teachers at The Gardner School are committed to connecting with your baby’s unique schedule and needs from early on. With a day full of warm and nurturing interactions, movement and playtime, our infants have every opportunity to grow and develop a sense of trust and confidence in a secure learning environment.

Your baby is growing up! What an exciting time! At The Gardner School, our toddler program is carefully designed to encourage each child’s growing need for independence and emerging sense of self, while nurturing intellectual growth, exploration and socialization in a safe, supportive environment.

With so many physical, cognitive and social milestones to achieve in such a short period of time, our two-year-olds are encouraged to learn through exploration. Our teachers create a supportive, loving environment that fosters autonomy and self-confidence in these newly independent and increasingly social students.

Our preschool program focuses on building cognitive performance through child-initiated, cooperative play. Our teachers introduce these active and enthusiastic learners to a more structured curriculum and new academic concepts in language, literacy, mathematics and science. With a consistent daily schedule, our three- and four-year-olds gain a sense of self-reliance and independence.

Our pre-K program focuses on the skills your child needs for Kindergarten readiness. Our teachers prepare our students for the academic challenges in Kindergarten and beyond, by tailoring the curriculum and lessons to the child’s needs, encouraging meaningful learning experiences through play and instilling a sense of responsibility, leadership and independence during the pre-K year.

Available at select TGS locations, our private Kindergarten program offers a full day of fun educational experiences. With a research-based curriculum and teacher-student ratios that are nearly half that of most public and private schools, your child will gain an academic edge right from the start.
