Tuition Preschool

WELCOME TO GERNER

Welcome to the Gerner Tuition Preschool Program. Our award-winning program is for children ages 3-5 that combines a play-based and teacher-directed instruction that is developmentally appropriate for students while providing a rigorous curriculum to prepare students for kindergarten.  Students leave Gerner identifying  their letters and sounds, reading sight words, counting to 50, writing their name and often beginning sentences and more. However, our focus is not just academic, we believe students need to focus on their play and pro-social skills too, so they have the 21st century skills to problem solve, collaborate and work as a team as they move into elementary school.

Teachers provide a caring, nurturing environment while leading a structured classroom focused on high expectations and student learning. Partnering with families is one of our highest priorities, as we know parents are the child’s first teacher.

our mission is:

Caring Staff ~ Quality Instruction ~ Purposeful Learning.
