Woodbury Preschool Parent Information Nights
January 12 & 20
at the National Museum of Play®

The National Museum of Play at the Strong™ invites interested parents to learn about the museum’s unique preschool curriculum during one of two Woodbury Preschool Parent Information Nights, Wednesday, January 12 or Thursday, January 20 at 7 p.m.  Parents will have an opportunity to tour the classrooms and meet the preschool staff. No reservations are necessary.

Woodbury Preschool is inspired by the Reggio Emilia teaching philosophy, which sees each child as a competent, resourceful, curious, and inventive learner. Small classes, specially designed classrooms, and a secure outdoor play space offer a comfortable environment for preschoolers. Set among the museum’s engaging, dynamic exhibits, the preschool also provides children the opportunity to explore fun learning environments with hands-on guidance. Early childhood teachers help foster children’s creativity and self-discovery through playful activities.

Families with children who will be three or four-years-old on or before
