Pre/K Programs

At Greenwich International Pre/K, we offer a variety of Pre/K programs for children ages 2 to 6.

2-3's "Lollipops"
2, 3, or 5 week
Half Day: 9:00-11:30
Full Day: 9:00-3:00

For our youngest children, we offer part-time and full-time programs that include parent and caregiver meetings addressing important issues to families such as separation, autonomy, toileting, sibling relationships, sleep patterns, language acquisition and socialization. We encourage your children to begin to make decisions, follow directions, and interact appropriately with peers. Activities include sand and water play, art, music and movement, block building, story-telling, dramatic play, karate, and nap/quiet time.

3-4's "Jelly Beans"
2, 3, or 5 week

Three-year-olds are encouraged to join our preschool program with the same flexibility of part-time or full-time. Recognizing that children at this age demonstrate a wide spectrum of development, our curriculum is tailored to the individual needs of each child. Through play, the primary focus is to help children develop socialization skills and peaceful methods of conflict resolution. Our children grow and thrive as they discover the wonderful worlds of books, music, acting, art and science. These experiences are designed to promote high self-esteem and foster life-long feelings of competence.

4-5's "Doughnuts"
5 days/week

In our prekindergarten program, children are free to choose from a variety of both teacher-directed and child-directed projects that include drama, introduction to phonics and writing the alphabet, mathematics, language skills, literary activities, science investigation, artistic expression and music scales. Self-directed play and exploration is crucial as it allows for cooperative social interaction and supports a growing interest and knowledge. Children meet in both large and small groups to foster a sense of community within the class; they share common experiences, stories and songs and begin to understand and appreciate cultural differences. As in all our programs, music, art, craft-making, dance and karate are central.

5-6's "Rocky Road"
​5 days/week

Greenwich International Kindergarten's program is designed to stimulate creativity, learning by example, and self-discovery. The program meets five days a week and full-time. Academic and social development is the central focus. While we encourage a full-day program, we welcome students to join us following their half-day public school kindergarten, and limited transportation from area kindergartens is available upon request. We work to build a foundation for successful learning as the student begins to take responsibility for his or her own choices and decision-making. The curriculum includes language and literacy development, robotics, math skills, art projects, storytelling, music theory, violin lessons, karate, and hands-on science projects. Optional music/dance classes are available upon request and include Broadway Kids' dance class and piano lessons, after school.

After School Program

At Greenwich International Pre/K, we believe that learning new skills is as fun as it is educational. We offer a wide variety of after-school experiences to appeal to students of all ages. Our after school programs include music (voice, piano and violin), musical theater (singing, dancing, costume design and prop and set creation) and language classes (Japanese, English and other private language lessons).

Summer School

Research tells us that children who continue to learn through the summer months excel during the academic year. The Greenwich International Preschool and Kindergarten summer program allows children to enjoy their vacation time while engaging their minds. We emphasize the importance of play by providing as much time outdoors as possible, as summer is the time for children to gain a deep appreciation for the environment. Children play in our enclosed playground, take swimming lessons twice a week at the Greenwich YWCA, and learn to care for themselves in the hot weather. Outdoor time is balanced with structure and activities such as swim classes, field trips to nearby nature centers, and daily arts and crafts using both natural and imported materials from around the world to provide a rich and lasting experience..
