Pre-K & K

Studio Red: A Pre-K and Kindergarten program

Our program reflects the most updated research and best practices on child development pedagogy and school outcomes. Studio Red provides a bridge to elementary school that respects the integrity of our child-centered values while offering the best possible preparation for academic and social-emotional success in school. We recognize the value of engaged, caring adults in relationship with children as they develop empathy, social skills, and flexible thinking.

Our curriculum develops alongside the children, evolving through their play. Children observe, question, form scientific theories, and experiment as teachers and classmates reflect together and construct shared understandings of our environment, materials, and community. 

Children use mathematics and literacy to express their thinking, problem-solve, and celebrate their imaginations. Teachers provide innovative tools, offering strategies tailored to accommodate children’s learning styles. Play provides a natural context in which the why, how, and what of learning coincide.

We honor the pace of childhood. We understand that while all children grow and develop in similar patterns, each child develops at their own pace. We respect each child’s interests, approaches to learning, and ways of being.
