Preschool for
Four Year Olds (PreK)

The SAE Preschool Serves Infants Through PreK

For our Four Year Olds, our preschool environment is referred to as PreK.  During this time in our preschool, students advance their skills in core academic areas, such as literacy, math, and science.  They are also exposed to other essential areas such as art, social and emotional well-being, and health and wellness. Students in PreK take music, mixed martial arts and music classes at least one time each per week with other staff from those areas, and at no additional cost to parents.  We use a project-based learning approach in PreK that promotes academic progress as well as social progress.  Students engage in daily journaling to strengthen their handwriting and reinforce that words have meaning.  They present their projects to help them become more confident in speaking and bringing their ideas to life, while using math and science to bring the projects to life.

  • PRESCHOOL TUITION

    Below are tuition rates for our Preschool.  Please know that all of our founders are/were parents of preschool students and understand the financial and emotional challenges that children this age may bring to a family.  Because of our nonprofit status and being solely focused on the well-being of our students, we have flexibility with how we structure tuition payments.  Each family is unique and more times than not we are able to make adjustments to a family's specific financial situation.  As is the case with our entire school philosophy, one size does not fit all.
