Excellence in Academics: Launch of Fives Program at Landmark Preschool - Ridgefield
Ridgefield, CT – Landmark Preschool, a premier preschool in Fairfield and Westchester Counties, is pleased to announce the opening of a comprehensive academic program designed for five-year-olds on its Ridgefield campus. The program will launch on September 1 for the 2020-21 school year and will provide a full day of engaging instruction beginning at 8:30 am and ending at 2:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
The Fives program will offer students the gift of time to develop a strong foundation of academic and social skills for a successful Kindergarten year. The curriculum, with a standard of excellence in academics, will be taught in a small, personalized classroom environment on the beautiful Ridgefield Academy campus. Teachers will use a hands-on approach to instruction that is designed to engage children in their learning and help younger students adjust to the social and academic demands of school. The low 8:1 student-to-teacher ratio will ensure that our experienced faculty can provide individualized attention to meet the developmental needs of each child. A further benefit of the program is access to the services and facilities that all RA students in K-Grade 8 enjoy. Students will study math and science in the Kitchen Lab, art and music in studios, perform in Turner Hall, and attend classes in the library and full-sized gymnasium.
“We are excited to expand our preschool offerings on the Ridgefield campus to include a Fives program. Our dedicated faculty are eager to deliver this engaging experience and curriculum to these students as we help them prepare for Kindergarten,” said Head of Preschool and Lower School Alison O’Callaghan. “We are committed to academic excellence in all areas of our program and the addition of a Fives program allows our school the opportunity to extend learning for children who can benefit from another year of academic and social preparation and growth.”
Nurture the wonder of becoming for your child as he or she prepares for success in Kindergarten and beyond.
