Woodbury School Parent Information Night
January 8 at The Strong®

The Strong invites interested parents to learn about the museum’s unique preschool and new early kindergarten curriculum during a Woodbury School Parent Information Night on Wednesday, January 8 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Parents will have an opportunity to tour classrooms and meet school staff. Reservations are not necessary.

Woodbury School is inspired by the Reggio Emilia teaching approach, 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 nurturing environment for preschool and early kindergarten students. Set among the museum’s engaging, dynamic exhibits, the school 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. The school’s early kindergarten program is the only half-day program of its kind available to five-year-olds in the Rochester area.

Families with children who will be three, four, or five years old on or before
December 1, 2014 are invited to apply for admission for the 2014–2015 school year. Eligible preschool students must be three or four years old on or before December 1, 2014. Eligible early kindergarten students must be four or five years old on or before December 1, 2014. 

Enrollment applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Information and applications are available online at www.museumofplay.org/education/woodbury-school, at the museum admissions desk, or by mail.
