Second Place: Rainbow Station
Third Place: Canterbury Community Nursery School
Preschool should be more than making macaroni masterpieces and toppling blocks. Primrose Schools advances a detailed curriculum for even the youngest children, teaching them life skills, like table manners and housecleaning, and character skills, like empathy and honesty, in addition to traditional academics. Rainbow Station teaches tots the seven habits of highly effective people in what it calls the nation’s first leadership preschool. We’re picturing toddlers in tiny power suits. And Canterbury Community Nursery School follows an experiential, learning-through-play philosophy.
