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.

  • Our son absolutely loves attending Blue Quill Playschool. He tells us wonderful stories of the things he does in school and the friends he gets to play with. We’ve noticed a big change in our son’s confidence and willingness to try new things. This is due to Ms. Jocelyn and Mrs. Cynthia providing a warm and enriching environment for the children to thrive and grown in. We highly recommend this playschool!

  • We are so grateful for the educators, board members and other families at Blue Quill Playschool who have created such a welcoming and inclusive space for our son’s first year of playschool. The educators are incredibly thoughtful and reflective in their approach to learning with the children and I really appreciate the care that went into sharing many different holidays and celebrations. My son loved the yoga, often coming home with new poses for us to try together, and it was always fun to hear about the playful and creative experiences the teachers had set out for the students to explore. We have loved being a part of this wonderful little community at BQPS!

  • I’m incredibly impressed with the teachers and team at Blue Quill Playschool! They have navigated and adapted through the pandemic while still communicating regularly and teaching our children. It’s incredible. They truly care for our children and provide a relaxed, fun, and explorative learning environment. After every class, my son excitedly tells me stories of what he did at school. He has a blast every day.

  • My son loves attending Blue Quill Playschool. We enjoy being part of this small, close-knit community. He loves playing with his friends and he loves learning from his teachers, who are always kind, caring and ready to have fun. He always comes home signing new songs and teaching us new games. We love seeing all his activities and crafts/art projects on the Brightwheel app. His favorite time of the day is calendar time, and he also loves outdoor time, as well. I highly recommend this preschool!
