At the core of our program is the philosophy that the early years are an optimal time of social development for young children. We combine the creativity of flexible, child-centered classrooms with the structure of a challenging curriculum. We allow children’s natural interests to shape areas of focus while incorporating proven practices in early childhood education.
Our children learn social skills through daily routines that help them achieve success as individuals and as members of a classroom. Children at Magic Garden learn through music, art, movement (dance, tumbling, fitness), and through daily exposure to literacy, math, and science.
Children also explore the beautiful wooded campus and play on our three playgrounds. Our graduates enter kindergarten with confidence and a solid academic foundation on which to grow.
We believe an excellent early childhood program is built on a foundation of superb teachers. Our team of motivated, energetic professionals have degrees in Early Childhood Education, Special Education, and Elementary Education.
Many of our teachers have advanced degrees and have received specialized training in areas such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), American Sign Language (ASL), and the Devereux Early Childhood Assessment Program (DECA).
In order to uphold the high standards of our program, staff development is ongoing throughout the year, ensuring that our teachers are up to date with current research.
Many of our teachers have been at Magic Garden for more than 10 years, each bringing a unique area of expertise to the classroom.
