Children use their innate curiosity to drive their learning passion. They have a joyful approach to uncovering new challenges and experimenting with the world around them. These traits should be fostered and promoted by focusing on developing the whole child so that they have the skills, independence and confidence to be successful in all their endeavors, be it social, educational or personal. Drawing on Montessori and Reggio Emilia approaches, we emphasize the idea that children are responsible entities; while with us they learn to respect their environment and their peers while learning to meet their own needs as independent individuals. In the words of Loris Malaguzzi: “Nothing without joy.”
We offer programs for 2-year-olds, PK3 and PK4. There are tiered rates for students of TU faculty, staff and alumni, and TU community families. The 2 and PK3 programs have a Tu-Th, M-W-F or 5-day attendance options. Our school year is 44 weeks in length, and we offer an optional summer camp.
