frequently asked questions

  • What is the school's educational philosophy/curriculum?
    We are a faith-based preschool that follows the Reggio Emilia approach to learning. This approach creates a co-learning environment where teachers learn with the children and work in a lateral relationship rather than a hierarchical one. Reggio Emilia also revolves around the children’s senses, relying on sight, sound, touch and even taste and smell to assist with learning. As a result, Reggio Emilia classrooms tend to look different than your average preschool with large common spaces, natural elements and lots of accessible and curiosity-sparking materials.

    The Way is a Preschool and TK, serving children ages 3 to 5 years old. All students enrolled in The Way must be at least 3 years old.
  • Does my child need to be potty trained prior to starting school at The Way?

  • Does my child need to have immunizations prior to starting school at The Way?
    Yes. For each child enrolled, we are required by the State of California to maintain accurate, up-to-date, immunization records. Immunization records are required prior to your child’s first day of attendance and need to be updated whenever your child receives a new immunization. Children who require updated immunizations after initial enrollment will be denied admittance to the center if proof of the updates are not submitted by the required due dates.
