Welcome to The Beagle School
The Beagle School is a private pre-school for children aged 2, 3, and 4 years old, located in beautiful Saratoga Springs, NY.
We believe children at this age learn best when they are learning through play.
Here at The Beagle School, we follow The Creative Curriculum philosophy. Our goal is to help children become enthusiastic, self-motivated learners through play-based activities. We believe this kind of education encourages children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their own ideas and to think their own thoughts. These skills will help them become successful not only at The Beagle School but throughout their lives. Our preschool program offerings reflect this emphasis on a play based curriculum.
A program for 2-year olds
Our Little Explorers program, located at 107 Circular St., is a warm, loving environment that gives students their first introduction to school routines, peer socialization, and being away from home. It is a play-based curriculum that includes circle time, story time, music and movement, free play, teacher-led art activities, and outdoor play. Children are given an introduction to concepts such as letters, counting, shapes, colors, and patterning. Our Little Explorers take two parent-chaperoned field trips each year and also have in-class yoga instruction.
A program for 3-year olds
Our Voyagers program, located at 115 Regent St., begins to introduce students to pre-Kindergarten skills within the framework of a fun, theme-based program. Each class follows a daily schedule incorporating science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) and includes free play, circle time, calendar activities, music and movement, learning centers, story time, and outdoor play. In addition, children work on name recognition and writing, fine and gross motor skills, and pre-math skills throughout their day.
Discoverers & Beyond Beagle
A Program for 4-year olds
Our Discoverers & Beyond Beagle programs, located at 115 Regent St., build on our three-year old curriculum, expanding ideas and concepts, encouraging more independence, and giving students the tools for success in Kindergarten. Each class follows a daily schedule, incorporating science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) and includes free play, circle time, calendar activities, music and movement, learning centers, story time, and outdoor play.
