Older Preschool

Children start our older preschool at approximately 3 years 9 months to 4 years 9 months.

There is a balance of free playtime and structured, teacher-directed activities throughout the morning. Curriculum based on Howard Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences encourages and supports the many strengths and differences of our young children.


  • Traditional: The program runs from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. 5 days per week.  An extended day program is offered until 1:00, 2:00, or 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday, and until 1:00pm on Friday.  There is also an early drop-off option each day at 8:00 a.m. 
    Starting September 2018, traditional hours will be 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • New September 2018: Rockwell will offer a full-day, full-year program and optional, flexible hours until 6:00PM.

Our joy knew no bounds when the teachers showed her and us a beautiful world of baking, planting, nature watching and joy of friendship with children and grown ups alike! The playground at Rockwell is the pride of this incredible 'family oriented' preschool and we have spent many hours there on numerous days even after the school day has ended for our preschooler! -Bhasin Family
