“The aim of education should not be the acquisition of data. The aim is the mental, emotional, physical and social development of each child.”

Our Preschool

Using the Carden Method

We understand that the early years at school are a critical step for little ones and an important decision for parents when selecting a school. Our program is focused on age level appropriate learning. Carden preschool consists of three's, four's, and a pre-k level group.

At Carden Preschool, we present literature for comprehension and vocabulary building while giving the children an opportunity to love books. We present Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, Mathematical understanding along with social and physical development. French vocabulary is presented, as well.

Our qualified preschool staff establishes opportunities in small groups for building communication skills and consistently guides our children in the courtesies of life. All of which is done in a happy welcoming atmosphere. We are preparing them for continued learning success.

A Carden Preschool at Carden Whittier Private School

As toddlers grow and become more aware of the world around them, the Carden program continually moves the activities along, understanding that the children’s time at school plays a vital role in the beginning steps of learning. Our little ones experience group lessons with the teacher and also valuable time together learning to share and relate to one another. Caring preschool teachers guide the children consistently in behaviors that will strengthen their social skills as well as their desire to learn. Even at the preschool age, the children’s play is their work.

Some items from our Early Childhood Program are listed below.
