Ages and Schedule Options

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

In these important preschool years, The Avery Coonley School builds the foundation for eager 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. 

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


Our Approach

We nurture children emotionally, socially, and academically to achieve their potential and feel valued as learners. Our faculty’s creative, research-based approach to teaching inspires and engages students through authentic, multi sensory learning experiences and real-life applications of concepts.
