Preschool

The Lillian Goldman Preschool experience is the beginning of a Dutchess Day School education. At the core of the broad, child-centered program is the philosophy of learning through play. The curriculum focuses on the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development of preschool children. It stimulates the imagination of each child by instilling an appreciation for and natural curiosity about the world around them. A team of teachers builds an atmosphere of trust, cooperation, and collaboration, in which children can celebrate differences of all kinds. Within this safe and nurturing environment, children explore and learn while being encouraged to take risks. Children are supported at all times as they move toward independence.

A child must be three by December to enroll in the three year old program and four by December to enroll in the four year old program. Children must be potty trained. Admissions for the preschool program will be made on a rolling basis.
