The Preschool at Garrison Forest School offers a selection of programs for girls and boys, from Toddlers through Pre-Kindergarten.
The Parent-Toddler class for children 18 to 24 months old meets on Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. A parent(s) or care-giver accompanies the child for the duration of the program.
The Twos Program, for children who turn two by September 1, meets Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
The Threes Program, for children who turn three by December 31, meets either Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings or five mornings each week. Both programs meet from 8:30 a.m. until noon with an extended day option.
The Fours and Pre-Kindergarten Programs for children who turn four by December 31 meets five mornings each week. Both classes meet from 8:30 a.m. until noon with an extended day option.
Extended Day Programs for Preschool
Lunch Bunch is available for Threes, Fours, and Pre-Kindergarten students from noon until 3:00 p.m. The children bring a lunch and spend the afternoon listening to stories, enjoying free play in the classroom and on the playground, and participating in projects, activities, and games. The afternoon also includes a short rest period with extended time to build, draw, paint, and play.There is an additional charge for this program.
Once students turn four, they are also eligible for Extended Day which operates from 3:00 until 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. The accredited Harford Heights program runs Extended Day, which is located in the Lower School building adjacent to Moncrieffe, our Preschool building. There is an additional charge for this program.
Both programs are designed to be a positive experience with time for greater freedom of choice, a less structured schedule, valuable additional socialization, and a group small enough for the teachers to focus on individual needs and relationships.
Early Birds, a morning drop-off program, is available at no cost to children ages four and older beginning at 7:30 a.m.
Garrison Forest's full-day Kindergarten program is all-girls. From Kindergarten through 12th Grade, Garrison Forest is an all-girls college preparatory program with a regional, national, and international boarding program from 8th - 12th Grade.
