Progressive Ed Moments: Orchard Preschool Presentations
Orchard teachers are known for teaching to the passions of their students, while integrating academics along the way. Students in Mrs. Bradley and Mrs. Lapworth-Kuehl’s classroom have been diving deep into topics they find interesting. From discovering geodes to studying unicorns, and from clock exploration to making treasure maps, students were engaged throughout the learning process because Orchard teachers are joyful partners in learning—a key tenet of Progressive education.
Only at Orchard will you find children as young as three-years-old presenting in-depth projects in front of their classmates. Students gain confidence in their ability to advocate for themselves and others and in the power of their ideas when teachers honor their individual voices, solutions and thinking. In this climate it’s ok to make mistakes and celebrate achievements.
