Beginning School: Ages 3 and 4
Literature, music, art, math, and science are the basis for play and exploration.
Ashbrook pre-schoolers and pre-kindergarteners learn to work together and solve problems cooperatively.
Ashbrook Independent School’s Beginning school programs provide a quality start for your child’s education. With outstanding teachers, facilities, and activities, there is no comparable program in Corvallis, Albany, or the local area.
Pre-School (Age 3 by Sept. 1st) This is the first school experience for many of our youngest students. Our goal is to provide a “softer start” to instill a foundational love of learning by providing engaging exploratory activities that stimulate curiosity and wonder while learning how to work and learn along with others. Thoughtful attention is given to the social and emotional growth of our littlest students ages 3-4 years old.
Pre-Kindergarten (Age 4 by Sept 1st) These students are preparing for the more academic role in kindergarten. Socially and emotionally these students are ready and excited to participate in more “real school” activities. Activities including small motor development (writing/cutting/ fine finger manipulatives), pre-reading, as well as large motor development best prepare our students to step confidently into kindergarten.
