About Our Program

Our program is 5 days a week, for 3 hours each day. Our teachers are licensed early childhood and special education teachers. Our team includes speech, occupational and physical therapists, and school psychologists to support students in need of services.  We teach skills based on Indiana's Early Learning Foundations, which are academic and functional standards for preschoolers. Learn more about the foundations of our curriculum here: Indiana Early Learning Standards

We believe that children need an environment that fosters the natural acquisition of foundational school skills through play, intentional teaching of social and self-care skills, and instruction based on the developmental needs of each child. Our staff is highly skilled in reaching young learners to help them prepare for school and life in the 21st century.
The Preschool of the Natural Sciences for HSE Schools is based on the belief that children are naturally curious and eager to learn. This is a critical period of time for our youngest learners and an opportunity for our schools to support and push the growth of their overall development. This is accomplished by marrying authentic and thoughtful project work in the natural science areas with foundational academic skills. Our learners deserve a quality preschool experience in a school learning community that values, enhances, promotes and respects the intellectual and social-emotional growth of young children.

• Designed for children ages 3-5 years, who are not kindergarten age
• Days filled with the hands-on study of the natural sciences

We believe all children are capable, creative, unique social learners eager to explore and communicate.
