Our Curriculum

Preschool, at its most effective, is a collaborative journey of child, teacher, parent and the community. It facilitates the development of the social, emotional and cognitive foundations of a child’s understanding of themselves, their place in the world and how they can impact that world. Preschool is the first and purest form of a “learning environment” that many children will experience and one in which discovery, discipline and empathy are our everyday tools.

Learning Circles

Through the joy of play and collaborative explorations into worlds unknown, The Mandell Learning Circles curriculum, takes children through the layered concentric circles of Self, Others and the Natural World to form connected spirals of learning. When complete, this experience provides every child with the knowledge, skills, compassion and self confidence necessary to succeed in a world of high expectations and collaborative achievement. The Learning Circles curriculum is a fully integrated learning program in which children develop skills and knowledge of numeracy, literacy, social connectedness and moral character within the context of their thematic curriculum.

“We chose Mandell because of its excellent curriculum and impressive teachers. Our son began [at Mandell] in the 2's program, and the experience has been more enriching than we could have ever imagined.”
