Through play-based learning and social interaction, we guide children to make discoveries about themselves, their classmates, the school community, and the world.
Every child enrolled in our Seedlings program will:
- Develop a greater sense of self, expanding the ways they express their thoughts, needs, and interests.
- Establish bonds beyond their immediate family members, developing a sense of belonging, courage, and compassion.
- Engage in a play-based curriculum (think painting, sorting, singing, building, squishing dough, and dramatic play) that grows their sense of independence and creativity.
- Experience science, math, art, language, movement, and Spanish through teacher-guided experiences and thoughtfully curated materials.
And we're there for you, too! We know that raising and educating children takes a village, and that's why we prioritize building a supportive community within our Seedlings program and beyond. We value the role of families as integral members of our school community, and strive to provide a nurturing environment for both children and caregivers.
Why Choose Corlears?
Why Choose Seedlings at Corlears?
We know how children learn best.
Corlears teachers honor this formative stage of early childhood by implementing an emergent curriculum — one that evolves over time and is influenced by each group’s curiosity. After careful observation of the children's interests and development needs, teachers introduce new materials, re-design classroom spaces, and pave the way for further experimentation and inquiry.
Small class sizes, always.
Classes are formed with developmental readiness in mind, and children in the early childhood division are closely supervised throughout the day. Class sizes do not exceed 14 students, and all classrooms have 2–3 teachers present on a regular basis.
Flexible, age-appropriate scheduling.
Programming options include 5 days/week from 8:45–11:45 a.m., with an extended-day option until 3:00 p.m., and after-school care options until 6:00 p.m. through Corlears Plus. Or, for our 2s, a 3-day flex option meeting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:45–11:45 a.m. with the option of extending to 5 days/week as the school year progresses.
