Openings available in our play-based Pre-K class
for children 3 and 4 years of age
 
What Our Parents Have to Say
"In a preschool program, we wanted a program that was play-based, emphasized nature play, and that was child-led without lacking structure. Plymouth was the clear winner... We have seen such a shift in our daughter's confidence this year! What I am so happy about is that her confidence has not grown at the expense of her sense of compassion or care for others; rather, they have grown together. The Quaker testimonies are woven throughout life at Plymouth and it is a powerful influence in how our children interact with the world."
—Erin Schmitt, Parent of 2015-16 Pre-K student
 
"Martha and Pam's Pre-K was a home away from home for our daughter. We loved that she had space and time to engage in free play and imaginative games with her classmates both inside the cozy classroom as well as outside on the campus... Because PMFS is a small school, children are able to develop relationships with teachers, staff and other students beyond their own classroom, and it was amazing to watch our daughter connect to others and develop a feeling of mastery over her entire school experience."
—Trina Berk, Parent of 2015-16 Pre-K student
 
 
Taking advantage of our 11-acre campus, students’ outdoor experiences are shaped by experienced, passionate teachers who impart an active appreciation of nature.
 
Discovery-Based Learning Opportunities and Child-Driven Exploration
A multidisciplinary, arts-integrated curriculum gives children opportunities to play and explore as they learn. 
Last spring, Pre-K organized a lemonade stand, accepting acts of kindness as payment, contributing to their community in a powerful way.
 
SPICES: Setting the Foundation with Fundamental Quaker Testimonies
Through universal Quaker values of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship, students are empowered to undertake positive initiatives that benefit our school and the wider community. 
 
An improv lesson in music class had students rhyming with numbers to create their own song collaboratively as a group while developing literacy and artistic skills.
 
Joyful, Active Learning in the Context of Community
Skills and lessons are taught through fun, engaging collaborative projects and activities.
 
Every morning, students gather for Circle Time, a key tool in supporting their development as individuals contributing positively to the group.
 
Providing an Education Rooted in Social-Emotional Skill-Building
Building skills for listening, problem-solving, conflict resolution, and effective communication, students develop their own voice and learn respect for each others’ points of view.
