Early Childhood Program: Preschool & Prekindergarten

GSB’s Early Childhood curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the young child.

The Early Childhood program provides a nurturing environment for students age 3-4 that encourages curiosity, inspires exploration, and builds a strong foundation in language and mathematical concepts. Students engage in hands-on learning activities, learn social-emotional skills, and develop fine and gross motor skills in the classroom, out on the playground, and across our beautiful campus.
