Early learning is about exposure to language, asking questions, exploring the world, making choices, making connections, solving problems, and learning to share. We start each day with devotion, talking about stories and questions from the Bible with our classmates. Students have fun while at the same time building strong character and moral sense.
Early Childhood students create projects based on their own ideas. What should we do and how should we do it? Using their hands and their minds, they employ all their senses as they discover the world around them. Our goal is to instill a love of learning for a lifetime.

On Feb. 15, third graders enjoyed yet another exciting Skype and special guest to conclude their solar system unit associated with their newly adopted CKLA language arts curriculum. Students were able to tour MIT's Aeronautics and Astronautics Space Propulsion Lab and learn about their project of designing, building, and testing tiny fuel efficient rockets caring satellites to the asteroid belt. The Skype was made possible thanks to Dr. Jones, parent of Lower School students, Jordyn and Janelle, who also shared about his experiences working with NASA. What a day to be a third grader at Episcopal!
