Preschool Prep

Preschool Prep at The Barstow School is a transitional class that prepares young learners for a successful entry into our early childhood program.
This classroom opens in August 2024 for children who turn three years old between September 2 and December 15. Serving as a bridge between home and school, preschool prep will grow your child's comfort and confidence in school in a nurturing environment. Our youngest learners develop language, cognitive, physical and social-emotional skills through play-based activities — and they discover the rewards of learning as they prepare for a seamless transition into preschool.
