Beginners & Preschool

The Beginners program at The Long Ridge School offers a warm start for children who are two, turning three years of age. In addition to classroom learning, we also provide our preschool students with important resources such as music, library, and physical education, all of which form a regular part of our program. Outdoor play and exploration of our wooded campus is part of the daily routine, which encourages creativity, social interaction, and a healthy lifestyle.

Our preschool teachers are proud to offer a warm and caring environment for these youngest of learners, helping them to grow in a manner consistent with developmental norms and expectations. At The Long Ridge School, we emphasize an atmosphere in which our students remain active, eager, and attentive learners long after they leave our halls.

Nursery School

Our Nursery school program for 3s and 4s builds a child’s confident sense of self as a unique and capable person in the world. The Nursery for threes and fours strives to create a learning environment sparked and sustained by collaborative play and supported risk-taking. Long Ridge School teachers work with each child’s distinct social, intellectual, creative, and physical development to inspire a sense of curiosity and wonder and build confidence as a learner.

Advantages include:

  • Provide a foundation for learning—Children are curious and observant of the world around them and want to learn certain things that their family members can do. Our teachers provide children with games and activities to help them acquire the necessary skills.
  • Skill development—Children will develop these academic and social skills which will help them become headstrong adults. Children will learn to explore, communicate with their friends, and learn to do things for themselves, which will help them in the future.
  • Become successful adults—The Nursery program provides children with strong skills they need later in life.
  • Structured setting—A structured setting is a great way for your children to learn how to follow instructions, take turns, and share the teacher’s attention, which will help children during their school years.
