We recognize that choosing a school is not only intellectual. It’s emotional and visceral, so we hope you will join us soon on an in person tour.
STIMULATING CURIOSITY. CREATING A SAFE AND NURTURING ENVIRONMENT. TEACHING NON-VIOLENT MEANS OF PROBLEM SOLVING. USING REAL IMAGES, AND AUTHENTIC ARTIFACTS AS VISUAL DISPLAYS. PROVIDING HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS FOR ART PROJECTS. EXPLORING THE DIVERSITY OF OUR WORLD. GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY. SUPPORTING CHILDREN HELPING CHILDREN.
OUR CURRICULUM RECOGNIZES HIGH ART AND INCORPORATES THE MAKING OF CONSTRUCTIVIST ART PROJECTS AS FUNDAMENTAL MECHANISMS FOR HIGHER LEARNING.
We encourage self-directed play – this gives children the opportunity to hone decision-making and planning skills, and vastly increases their attention spans.
From the moment you walk through the gates, you are transported to a magical world of art, music, dance and endless creativity. Each festival in the multicultural curriculum is a culmination of purposeful, breathtakingly beautiful art projects, authentic songs and meaningful stories. The children are treated with such tenderness, love and positivity, setting them on a path of strong social emotional development and self-expression. It has been simply amazing for me to watch my girls thrive in this environment and we feel so blessed to have been a part of this exceptional community.

There is magic happening everyday at Little Dolphins. The magic begins from the time the children pass through the gates – their little bodies seemingly always in motion, running, jumping, climbing, filling the schoolyard with energy and laughter. Having attended a number of the programs whose rich themes celebrate a diversity of cultures and customs, we’ve been witnesses to our grandchildren's ever-growing sense of wonder and expanding love of learning. We are so grateful for the magic and joy we've get to share with our grandchildren, Kalen and Barrett. Thank you, Little Dolphins Preschool!
