Our preschool curriculum is carefully designed to provide a balanced year of academic, social and emotional growth for our students. Our expert faculty and staff combine a variety of teaching approaches, curriculum programs, and specialty classes that are matched to each developmental stage in order to ignite a student's curiosity and natural love for learning.


Preschool Curriculum and Developmental Goals

Co-curricular Classes

In addition to our academic curriculum listed above, we offer a variety of co-curricular classes. These classes are designed to enrich our student's creative, social and emotional development. Cocurricular classes are embedded into daily class schedules, starting in the young preschool years to help prepare for the transition into the Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs in our Lower School.


Introducing Spanish to our youngest learners helps them boost problem-solving, critical thinking, and listening skills, in addition to improving memory, concentration, and the ability to multi-task. Children exposed to additional languages show enhanced creativity and mental flexibility.  Spanish lessons include vocabulary: colors, counting, animals, food and body parts; as well as greetings and sentence building. Spanish is taught with puppets, songs, flashcards and musical instruments.


Our QLS STEM curriculum aims to expose students to STEM concepts through the exploration, experimentation, and engagement in investigations to form a deeper understanding of STEM. Our mission is to provide the children with an environment to discover science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through materials and concepts exploration. The program acts as an extension to foundational building by providing hands on, collaborative, and project-based learning. Through utilizing the scientific process to make discoveries, collaborate with their classmates with peer discussions and debates, use technological tools to aid in their investigations, record and analyze their data and form conclusions based on the evidence presented, the children are discovering how STEM plays an integral role in our daily lives. 

Library Time

Quarry Lane adopted the Kimochis® Early Childhood Curriculum, a social-emotional learning and character education program, to enhance our student's social and emotional developmental skills. Kimochi (key-mo-chee) means “feeling" in Japanese. Children will learn how to recognize and manage emotions; demonstrate caring and concern for others; establish positive relationships; make responsible decisions; and handle challenging situations constructively. Kimochis is incorporated into our students' library time.

The Language of Art

Young children are naturally drawn to artistic expression. It is through which they communicate ideas about their world and experiences, develop critical thinking and creative thought, and motivate learning. The Art program is designed to cultivate creativity and curiosity, and to develop an understanding of a wide range of hands-on art media. Through this program, the children will explore ten core art mediums in-depth: drawing, watercolor, sketching, tempera paint, collage, clay, wire & beads, weaving, and loose parts. 


We believe that music is one of the best vehicles for learning in early childhood development. Our music program takes musical learning to the next level and helps support students' brain development. Our music curriculum is implemented weekly and is focused on social, emotional, early language and motor skill development for young children.
