Preschool of the Natural Sciences
• Designed for children ages 3-5 years, who are not kindergarten age
• Days filled with the hands-on study of the natural sciences
The Preschool of the Natural Sciences for HSE Schools is based on the belief that children are naturally curious and eager to learn. This is a critical period of time for our youngest learners and an opportunity for our schools to support and push the growth of their overall development. This is accomplished by marrying authentic and thoughtful project work in the natural science areas with foundational academic skills. Our learners deserve a quality preschool experience in a school learning community that values, enhances, promotes and respects the intellectual and social-emotional growth of young children.
We believe all children are capable, creative, unique social learners eager to explore and communicate.
We offer half day preschool. Morning class hours are held Monday 8:30-11:20, Tuesday-Friday 8:30-11:30. Afternoon classes are held Monday 12:20-3:10, Tuesday-Friday 12:30-3:30. In our program, children who are 3-years-old and early 4-years-old typically attend in the morning, and children who are older 4-years-old and 5-years-old attend in the afternoon. Children must reside within HSE Schools to attend.
Our Preschool classes are located at Brooks School Elementary, Sand Creek Elementary, and Hoosier Road Elementary. Preschool placement is based upon home elementary for kindergarten.
