Believing that education is a life-long process, our Early Childhood program seeks to nurture and develop the hearts and minds of our youngest students. Toddlers (age two), Eaglets (age three), and Transitional Kindergarten “TK” program (ages four and young fives) engage in hands-on exploration of the world around them.
Our program is designed to help children discover and create with one another. Teachers provide ample time for exploration, as well as lead activities which promote academic readiness in individual, small group, and whole group settings. Our curriculum is designed to be both developmentally appropriate and appropriately challenging, in an effort to meet each child’s specific needs.
Character education is infused throughout the day as the children interact and learn how to get along with others who are different from them. In this environment, children develop the skills they need to become successful learners in Kindergarten and beyond.
Davidson Day is the only independent school in the Lake Norman area to offer an Early Childhood program for students as young as 2 years old.
