Dear Families,

We are excited to have you join our school community.  Our school is founded on being an affordable yet thorough welcoming environment that fosters a lifelong love of learning in your children.

Our teachers are trained and experienced. Ms. Cheryl is a certified teacher for early education in Washington State and Ms. Rachel has completed her bachelor work at the University of Washington in Early Education and Family Studies. Ms. Michaela has a certification for early education in Germany and brings her experience with different cultures to our school. We also pride ourselves on the integration of learning programs such as Project-based, Montessori, and Reggio Emilia methods, which focus on child-driven education. Our teachers bring their experiences with these different programs into one cohesive curriculum. Our program helps your child build upon what they have previously learned and each child will be given individual and group lessons in core areas such as reading and writing, math, geography, self-help skills, science, German, and other subjects.

While our focus is getting your child ready for Kindergarten, we take children as a young as 2.5-3 when they are developmentally ready for our preschool curriculum.

The current kindergarten learning environment with Common Core standards puts pressure on families that are concerned about an easy preschool-kindergarten transition. Our solution was to create a quality curriculum that is rich with tactile, visual, and auditory experiences that will foster a love of learning.

Garden Ridge Preschool will support learning in all the important developmental domains for early childhood education in addition to preparing your child for the transition into kindergarten and beyond. We look forward to caring for your child and for your family. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers.

Ms. Cheryl and Ms. Rachel
