In the Preschool and Pre-kindergarten classrooms we begin to focus on academic standards. Piaget believed that a child learns from what is in their environment. At Chanen, we provide students with an environment that allows them to feel safe to explore, ask questions, and learn at their pace. We believe in providing concrete skills that provide a strong foundation for all future academic success.
