Preschool

two, three, and four year-olds

At Marin Primary & Middle School we believe that the innocence, curiosity, and playful exploration of early childhood are key building blocks of healthy growth and future success.  Our preschool teachers treasure childhood and encourage learning in the classroom and beyond, offering a developmental, play-based program where children thrive. Guided by supportive teams of teachers, children build self-confidence, gain independence, and develop critical social skills through their connections with teachers and other children. Our program supports the cognitive and social-emotional growth of young children, guided by the principles of Developmentally Appropriate Practices for Young Children from the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
