Children at EDS develop at their own pace with the guidance and support of loving, dedicated and experienced teachers. Through visual arts, drama, music, movement, storytelling, language arts, science, and mathematics, children learn to interact with their environment as problem-solvers.
Individually and in small groups, students are engaged in the school’s listening and library centers, water and sand tables, blocks and puzzles, games, music center, playground, and more. There are places in each classroom for children to curl up with a book, a doll, or another friend in quiet play, to act out a favorite story or a spontaneous drama, to paint, draw, write and build, and to come together as a community of friends.
Evergreen Day School provides early care and play-based education for toddlers to five year olds.
EDS offers children a safe and nurturing place to grow, question, and explore their world. Our staff is committed to helping each child uncover and develop their own unique abilities. We believe that supporting young children’s natural curiosity builds a foundation for joyful learning.
We embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion by welcoming all staff, children and families of all identities including, but not limited to: race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, culture, family structure, natural origin, religion, or class.
