Open to members and non-members.

Cocoon’s Preschool Prep program prepares your little one for the challenges and joys of entering a school environment. Our program is inspired by best practices from the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, Montessori and Reggio Emilia. Throughout the course the children will begin to internalize classroom routines, work towards developmental milestones, and build self-confidence. They will become part of their very own little community and learn language and self-management skills to navigate social interactions in a preschool setting. This course is a 90 minute drop-off class to allow children to practice healthy separation from parents and caregivers.

Details

Children will come together to share in a community meeting, play, and learn from their teachers and from each other. This course was developed by certified AMS Montessori educators with a seasoned background in International Baccalaureate, and Reggio educational philosophies.


Our program has been designed to incorporate the Units of Inquiry from the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program as a framework for the Montessori works in the classroom environment. The children will also be exposed to Reggio Emilia inspired provocations to allow for freedom of expression and exploration. There are four 10 week Units of Inquiry we will explore throughout the Full School Year Program, and two Units for each of the Half School Year programs.
