PRE-K IN THE PARK
Welcome to Apple Blossom Bunch’s Pre-K in the Park. Pre-K in the Park is a small, multi-age pre-school for children 3 to 5 years old at the Saratoga Arts Center, Saratoga Springs, NY. With our central location, children experience all that Saratoga Springs has to offer within walking distance.
We believe that preschoolers are not ready to learn sitting in a desk. Our philosophy is that if we teach through experience preschoolers will grow up aware of the environment and community. Knowledge is available every day and learning first hand is the best way for a preschooler to retain their learning. Even in our classroom we are learning through hands on experiences. We mix time learning out in our community, in our classroom and in the natural environments we visit each week.
Our Site: The Saratoga Arts Center and Congress Park
The Arts Center is the perfect “home base” for our pre-school, giving the children of Apple Blossom the opportunity to learn together as a group experiencing the world, nature, and their town. The Saratoga Arts Center is located at 320 Broadway. With Congress Park as a perfect location for our nature-based program, the world is our adventure land.
Apple Blossom Bunch Pre-K in the Park Program believes that learning is simple. It takes a little excitement, a bit of listening skills, and the space to take it in and process. At our pre-school we create an environment where children are encouraged to learn through life, through play, through daily life tasks, through nature, and through our community on our many visits out into the world together as a group.
Our environment is rich with opportunities to ask questions and explore, to discover, and time to learn. Our rhythm is designed by childhood itself, exactly what a pre-school child needs.
