HSE Preschool of Natural Sciences

 

The Preschool of the Natural Sciences for HSE Schools is based on the belief that children are naturally curious and eager to learn. This unique program is designed for children ages 3 to 5-years-old, who are not of kindergarten age. This is a critical period of time for our youngest learners and an opportunity to support their growth by marrying authentic and thoughtful project work in the natural science areas with foundational academic skills.

Virtual instruction will be provided for all preschool students beginning on Monday, August 10, 2020. Hse Preschool will follow the four-phase reopening plan schedule.  To link to the HSE Preschool webpage with additional Reopening guidance, CLICK HERE
