Why learning is important in the “formative years” and what to look for when choosing a PreK program for your child.


Cooperating, being curious, sharing — these are the building blocks of a child’s education that are formed in the first five years. At Columbus Academy, children in our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten learn how to collaborate, solve problems and make connections across subjects. Our teachers capture spontaneous moments of discovery to make learning immediate and relevant for each student. When education is meaningful right from the start, it sticks for a lifetime.
