Program Highlights

An Invitation to Read and Write

We use diverse tools to help children start to write and learn letter and number recognition in a way that is fun and playful. We foster a love of literacy with stories, books, songs, and finger play.

An Invitation to Create

We provide a variety of opportunities and materials where children can feel empowered to use their imagination and create something unique and special to them.

An Invitation to Move

Yoga, music, and daily outdoor-time provide children with opportunities to move, jump, run, balance and become more aware of their bodies and what they can do.

  • My son has been attending the Blue Quill Playschool for two years. He absolutely loves going to school and looks forward to every day that he has class. He especially loves the sensory toys and exploring the crafting shelves. I am continually impressed by Mrs Joca and Ms Katie’s professionalism, creativity, and dedication to creating the best learning environment for the students. I highly recommend this outstanding preschool!

  • My 3.5 yr old son attended the free drop-in sessions offered during November and December. He was excited to see the new stations each week, but especially loved the play kitchen and anything to do with construction and wheels. Teacher Joca and Teacher Katie were very inviting. They encouraged and engaged my son and each of the children at the stations and activities in which they were interested. I would definitely recommend Blue Quill Playschool to others.

  • Teacher Joca is an extremely caring, patient and a kind teacher. She is creative and is always looking to try new things as she taught my older son preschool.

    I visited the  program space at Bluequill and it was spacious, well organized and had lots of centers for the children. It has a large gym, dance area and outside park. 

    The kids naturally gravitated to Teacher Joca and Teacher Katie’s gentle ways.

  • Bluequill Playschool allows children to come as they are and flourish in their own learning journey. It’s a perfect first exposure to “school” because there is  guided free play to help them learn and gain confidence. I loved that the children got to go outside almost every class. Ms. Joca and Ms. Katie are a powerful team. They have every trait you wish for in your child’s teachers. They are innovative and creative; problem-solvers and flexible; patient and kind; and loving and reassuring. My children adore Ms. Joca and Ms. Katie. They helped make the transition to kindergarten easy – Thank you!
