What We’re All About
Tangerine Schoolhouse is a play- and project-based school for students ages 2 through 5. Our students are grouped in two multi-age classrooms, allowing students to learn from one another, develop social and emotional skills, and make the most of their preschool experience.
We offer an immersive and creative learning environment that focuses on the needs and skills of each child. We believe in delivering developmentally appropriate, research-based (and most of all FUN!) learning experiences to our students.
At Tangerine Preschool we are imagining the future and doing everything we can to nurture a passion for learning, exploration, and creativity in our students.
Not your typical school day
Tangerine Schoolhouse is proud to provide private education for elementary age students. Students may attend full a full school day 5 days a week, or they may choose to come part time, as a supplement to home school education.
Private school students will work in a multi-age class completing projects across several disciplines to deepen and strengthen their knowledge, try out new concepts and push the limits of what they are capable of. Our students look forward to coming to school each day to see what exciting things they will learn next.
In everything we do at Tangerine Schoolhouse, we strive to deliver learning opportunities that are appropriate to the age, ability, and skill level of each of our students. We want to challenge our students to achieve more than they ever thought possible. Your child will do activities above and beyond what's included in a typical school day. We'll experiment, create, and find joy in learning each day.
Tangerine Schoolhouse Mission & Values
Our Mission Statement:
At Tangerine Preschool we aim to nurture the sense of wonder in each child. Through play-based, developmentally appropriate learning experiences, a safe and welcoming environment, and loving teachers, children can express their creativity and individuality and explore all the things they wonder about.
First and foremost, we value the safety and well-being of the children in our care. The basis of everything we do is with the care of our children in mind.
We value developmentally appropriate learning experiences. Research and experience have shown that the best way for children to learn is through play. We value how play helps the whole brain develop - not just separate academic areas, but also social and emotional development. We value the friendships that come from learning new social skills. We value self-expression through art, writing, science, or math. We value children having the opportunity to grow to their full potential.
Finally, we value families. You are and will always be your child's first teacher. You have given them the foundations they need to succeed in preschool and beyond. We value your input and all that you have to offer to your child's education.
