There is enough academic success to go around

All children within the designated age groups (see navigation at left) are welcome at the Reading Friends preschool. There is no pre-testing for qualification. Graduates of Reading Friends are accepted into the best private and public schools, leading many parents to refer to Reading Friends as the premiere prep school.

Our curriculum, Phonics Advantage, is based on the Alphabet Phonics Curriculum, which originates from the famous Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching phonetics and language structure.

Enthusiastic learning is all about keeping things moving

Our gross motor training program is designed to develop self-confidence through positive learning. The fundamental motor skills provide each child with a foundation for developing the patterns for learning upon which cognitive processes are formed. Successful mastery of these skills encourages children to learn with enthusiasm, which transfers to other learning experiences.

Reading opens the book to a world of learning

The Reading Friends preschool program also provides a creative learning experience, which exposes children to the world of literature, art, math, social studies, and science. The focus on children’s literature generates topics for study in science, social studies, and health.

For registration information please contact the school directly. Children must be two years of age prior to the start of school in order to be enrolled.
