How do you introduce a young child to the concept of preschool, in a way that’s engaging and readies them for full-time schoolwork later on?  With learning pods!  Playgarden Prep learning pods are created for children ages 2-4, aimed at making them familiar and comfortable with the concept of group-based schooling, while providing an enriching curriculum that will help put them at the head of their future classes!

How Playgarden Prep Preschool Pods Prepare Your Child to Love Learning

Our learning pods are made up of 90-minute drop-off classes which are offered 1, 2, or 3 days per week.  Drop-offs are handled at the front door, for maximum safety.  Each pod is only for preschool ages, 2-4, and has a maximum capacity of five students.  We want to make sure your child gets plenty of direct attention and interactions with their teacher, while being extra safe!

The curriculum for each learning pod is based on our main preschool program, based on the time-tested enriching Montessori techniques =, combined with Core curriculum.  Each pod is designed to introduce our young students to the major subjects they’ll find in school, including language, math, science. We use additional development tool such as music, movement, and other sensory lessons.  We incorporate plenty of hands-on learning while emphasizing literacy and phonics.
