Where learning starts with wondering and feels like playing.
Waynflete knows how much our youngest learners need to feel connected—to their teachers, to their friends, and to their ever-expanding world. The energy and excitement that fuels these days of discovery and deep learning can be felt throughout our close-knit community, where every child is seen and supported for who they are.
Using the Reggio Emilia approach, our Early Childhood instructors create immersive, multidisciplinary, in-the-moment learning experiences to spark and support the natural curiosity and creativity of each child.
Inside Early Childhood
A gentle, gradual drop-off as children engage with each other and the day ahead. Mindful moments and morning meeting. Wheelbarrows and shovels on the playground, instruments in the Conservatory, sensory tables and blocks and paint brushes and books—let our Early Childhood students show you what life at Waynflete Early Childhood is really like, and why they love it.
Early Childhood students are always on the go and we give them plenty of opportunities to run, jump, climb, twirl, and tumble indoors and out. From stretches to Scooterville to kicking soccer balls, students begin developing motor skills, team spirit, and a lifelong love for physical activity.
We know every student needs more this year.
More one-on-one attention from teachers. More hands-on, in-depth, challenging learning. More time to connect with friends. See how Waynflete will make the most of this school year

Just as hands-on, experiential learning is core to our curriculum, exploring our campus and classrooms is an essential part of the application process. Our admission events are fun, interactive, no-pressure opportunities to observe classes, hear from students and teachers, talk with current parents, and more. See upcoming Admission events
Why Reggio Emilia is the right approach to preschool.
What happens when you put three- and four-year-olds in charge of their own learning? They will learn because they want to—for the rest of their lives. See how Waynflete transforms the traditional classroom and engages our youngest learners
“Our EC classroom hums with the work of children—excited and productive play. It is an environment that nurtures experimentation, curiosity, and risk taking. We listen to children’s questions and ideas and design connected and purposeful learning opportunities that encourage deeper inquiry. Come see where they have taken us today!”
