The Preschool program at The Albany Academies is a coeducational coordinate program for older three-year-old children and younger four-year-old children, informed by the developmentally appropriate practices established by the National Association of Education of Young Children.

This approach recognizes that girls and boys learn through active, meaningful interactions with developmentally appropriate materials, peers and adults. The program provides daily opportunities for large group, small group and individual instruction. A balance of indoor and outdoor activities, active and quiet play and child-centered and teacher facilitated interactions complete the day.
Preschool meets the challenge of providing the experiences and opportunities that help young children learn and grow. Students also work with Specialist Faculty in Physical Education, Music, Art, Library and Creative Movement.

Preschool at The Albany Academies provides the perfect mix of experiences and opportunities for young children, planting the seeds that will nurture their development and curiosity and grow into a lifelong love of learning.
