Beaufort Academy's preschool strives to create a unique learning environment that sparks the physical as well as the emotional growth and discovery of each individual child.  Our creative curriculum is a combination of both traditional and progressive concepts used to support each student’s social, emotional and cognitive growth.

We use Handwriting without Tears to promote language and literacy development by introducing stimulating and challenging activities that reinforce higher levels of letter recognition, phonemic awareness, expressive and receptive language, oral language comprehension and concepts of print.

Math is taught through a variety of hands activities such as block building, patterning, graphing and puzzle activities. The Scientific Method is used during Science lab both in our in class science stations as well as our outdoor science lab. We use such concepts as asking a question, hypothesizing, experimenting and concluding our experiments. Social studies lessons are done through creative problem solving and designed to promote a broader discovery of the world around us.

Advanced motor skills are taught through structured yoga, sports, and playground activities. Our teachers are highly qualified experts that will introduce a variety of key, age-appropriate lessons designed to develop a lifelong love of learning. Each classroom has a lead teacher and assistant teacher.
