About the Provider

Description: The Mary Elizabeth Preschool is a magical, wholesome place for 3-5. We believe social development, by promoting independence, self confidence and respect for others, is as important as the academic curriculum. We offer a perfect blend of academic and imaginative play emphasizing patience, proactive teaching addressing social skills before conflicts arise and have a genuine love of children. The Mary Elizabeth is a leader in the field of child development. Being a part of the Mary Elizabeth is unhurried, slows life down for children and reminds us of the importance of children and reminds us of the importance of imaginative play in a world that simply moves too fast. Your child will be free to take risks, gain independence, be creative and explore the many situations set up throughout the year at our school. The energy and enthusiasm you feel when you enter the Mary Elizabeth makes you never want to leave! Some of the opportunities your child will experience at MEP are field trips to apple orchards, farms, trips to the Flynn, sugaring, Smugglers Notch, hiking, dressing up for a tea party, lots of singing for performances and public speaking, working in different areas set up for exploration, being part of a local nature program and growing a garden are just a few of the activities your child will experience at MEP.
