Garden of Learning is a pre-school and childcare center for 3, 4, and early 5 year olds, during the school year. We also provide before and after care. We are looking forward to another fantastic year! New full time students will receive $20 off each week for their first month! Our students benefit from small student/teacher ratios with highly qualified teachers. We are quality rated in Maryland Excels and offer excellent kindergarten preparation. Our preschool curriculum includes arts and crafts, music and movement, literacy, math, cooking and science, daily. We enjoy fun, "hands on" learning activities with an emphasis on social-emotional development as an ongoing part of our curriculum.
The overall goal of Scotia Mortensen, Director and Head Teacher, is to advance each child to the best of their abilities in a fun, nurturing environment. Garden of Learning has ample, beautiful space, indoors and outdoors for the maximum of 12 children we serve. Our playground is ideal for children of all ages to spread out and enjoy daily exercise. The rates are affordable, and our school offers a warm, family-like environment where each child is valued. We strive to build a strong community life by involving families in community events and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. With a focus on school success, Garden of Learning works to develop each child's lifelong love of learning.
Garden of Learning has numerous native plants, and a seasonal vegetable garden where both children and parents can participate. Our program is quite outdoors oriented, and the curriculum extends learning outside. Surrounded by mature trees, Garden of Learning has a "naturalistic playground" designed to connect children to the outdoors during play. A large tepee offers an outdoor gathering place for "circle time" when the weather permits. Oversized bamboo musical pipes also help inspire creative outdoor play.
Garden of Learning is dedicated to maintaining a healthy indoor and outdoor environment. The preschool serves all organic food, uses only non-toxic, all-natural cleaning products, and maintains the site without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers. We are conveniently located, less than 10 minutes away from downtown Frederick and Rosemont Avenue. We are now accepting POC vouchers! We can provide excellent parent references.
