The Lower School's Early Childhood program introduces the youngest students at Wheeler to the seemingly magical process of learning. Our Nursery, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classrooms are stimulating, colorful environments where children are inspired to wonder and encouraged to discover. During the Early Childhood years, students at Wheeler participate in a sophisticated play-based curriculum and our faculty members are dedicated to making sure that our students have a rewarding personal experience every day. Whether the challenge lies in the area of literacy development, mathematical concepts, or personal awareness, children in the early childhood program succeed in an extraordinarily rich, joyful, diverse and supportive family atmosphere.
Both Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten are half day programs. Optional afternoon care is available at an additional cost. Click the Early Childhood Afternoon Option link in the right-hand column for details.
