Welcome to the Little School

Finding the right preschool for your child is an exciting step in your life as a parent. At Bryn Mawr Little School, we know that you probably have many questions about how to begin and about how to choose the best school for your child.
At Bryn Mawr Little School, we know the importance of providing loving and consistent care, authentic experiences, and meaningful learning opportunities. We value each family’s unique contribution to our community. With close observation, personal attention, and ongoing communication we begin to know your child and are able to guide him or her on a path of discovery and learning that is best suited to his or her individual learning style and interests. Our highly educated, nurturing teachers have a clear understanding of how young children learn and grow. Our developmentally appropriate curriculum engages the whole child by encouraging creativity, communication, collaboration and problem solving, while having fun.

The Little School program is designed to provide ample opportunities for your child to socialize, play, learn and express his or her individuality in a nurturing and accepting environment. We encourage a child’s natural sense of wonder. Children spend their time painting and drawing, sorting, counting, and learning the alphabet, building with blocks, playing dress-up, dancing and singing, riding trikes, exploring and learning about nature, sharing ideas and stories, making their own books, and taking the time for rest and naps. We strive to balance the day so children can grow and learn in healthy, age-appropriate ways. We honor each child and family by celebrating your unique culture, heritage, ethnicity, traditions and beliefs.

The 2016-2017 school year will mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Bryn Mawr Little School. We remain as committed as ever to our belief that the role of a preschool is to offer children opportunities to form lasting friendships and develop independence and confidence in their emerging social and academic abilities. Teachers at the Little School provide foundational lessons that match the individual readiness of each child to ensure that they experience success every day.

To help you fully appreciate and understand what your child’s early education experience will be at Bryn Mawr, we invite you to visit us during the school day. We provide individual tours of our facility, allowing you and your child the opportunity to meet our dedicated faculty, see our large, inviting classrooms, explore our beautiful campus, ask questions and share insights significant to your child’s and family’s individual needs. Please call us at 410-323-8826 for more information or to schedule a visit.
