Bright children can’t wait to figure it out themselves, to find a better way, and to share their new discoveries. 

In these important preschool years, The Avery Coonley School builds the foundation for lifelong learning. Through exploration and discovery, we help learners develop a positive self-image so their natural curiosity grows seamlessly into critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. 

Our structured preschool program is designed for bright and curious learners ages 3 to 5 years old.
