"How do fish breathe?"
"What are clouds made of?"
"Why don't cats brush their teeth?"
How many times a day does your child ask questions just like these? At The Barstow School, the innate curiosity of each young learner drives the learning process. In the early childhood program, we transform their curiosity into a lifelong passion for learning to create independent, enthusiastic learners. Our loving, compassionate faculty uses a research-based curriculum in which students' reflective questions fuel hands-on learning experiences. The Barstow early childhood program emphasizes goals and objectives in the four areas of social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language development through a wide variety of instructional strategies.
Creativity is the product of an open environment that fosters imaginative thought and varied experience. The young learner's day at Barstow includes exploratory play, structured small group projects, whole class activities and one-on-one time with the teacher. In addition to the 10 classroom interest areas, Barstow's early childhood program includes specialized instruction in music, Spanish, art, library and creative movement.
