The goal of the Preschool Program at Greenfield is to teach independence, self-discipline, and enthusiasm for learning. The Program uses the Imagine It! curriculum, which is a new comprehensive reading and language arts curriculum from SRA/McGraw Hill. The children are also involved in hands-on experiences, real-life adventure, and assisted discovery as they explore concepts through play.
