PREP SCHOOL ~ " Enriching Lives "

Home Page

Sorry, we're closed for the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19.  Thank you for your interest. 

At Keystone Prep School, we believe all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing. We believe that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow, giving them both "Roots AND Wings." At Keystone Prep children are actively engaged in hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. 

Our program is Montessori-inspired, and each classroom has a mix of students ages 3 - 6 years old.  We find learning is greatly enhanced when children of this age range are grouped together.  

The three year old students admire and model their older peers and the older students reinforce what they've learned. Plus, they develop their leadership skills by helping the younger students.  

Sometimes, when we read to the children, we change the  names of the characters and insert the children's names.  It always seems to grab each child's attention.  

What really grabs our attention, is when we see a six year old reading to a three year old and hear the six year old insert the three year old's name, all by themselves. It's AWESOME and is just part of the reason we love what we do!
