At Magellan our Preschool students explore and learn in a nurturing, safe and enriching environment, and are immersed in the learner-centered and inquiry-based International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. Our Preschool teachers provide experiences and activities that promote cognitive, social, emotional, creative and physical growth and adapt their learning strategies to meet the learning, growth and developmental needs of the children.
Preschool at Magellan offers a Spanish-language immersion program, providing children the opportunity to build a foundation for biliteracy. The activities integrate content-focused early literacy, mathematics, social studies, science, and creative arts. Learning focuses on developing the ability to treat others with respect, cooperatively learn from and play with others and problem-solve in order to appropriately resolve conflicts. The Preschool schedule is both flexible and predictable. It includes large blocks of time for children to engage in play and creative expression in large and small group settings and is both teacher and self-directed.
