The Highlandtown Preschool

We are making our final preparations to open the doors of our new school to students on January 2nd, 2018. The school will accommodate twenty 3-year olds and twenty 4-year olds. We plan will offer instruction Monday through Friday, with half-day or full-day options, including before and after care, with fall, spring, and summer semesters.

We aim to serve students from among the many growing families of diverse backgrounds here in our community. Given the diversity of economic situations in our neighborhood, that means that our fee structure is unique and aimed to provide all families access to high-quality early childhood education. One third of our seats are reserved for households earning less than 70% of the area median income. Those students will pay $100 a week for the full day program. Two thirds of our seats are open to all area families. Those students will pay $200 a week for the full day program.

Given the diversity of language and culture in our neighborhood, that means that our classes will mostly be taught in English but by staff who are bi-lingual and can also offer support in Spanish. All communication with families will be bi-lingual, and Spanish is embedded in our curriculum.

Given the diversity of faith practices in our neighborhood, that means the school will be grounded in our Christian understanding that every child is beloved in the eyes of God and is endowed with inherent dignity and worth, while also allowing students to engage with the full variety of faiths in respectful and age-appropriate ways.
