At Eagles Nest Preschool our goal is to provide an enriching and safe learning environment that is filled with motivating experiences so that all children will develop a strong foundation on which to build future educational success.
The educational philosophy of Eagles Nest Preschool seeks to provide a quality program enriched with a variety of teaching styles and learning experiences that prepare children for Kindergarten.
Our curriculum is based on Piaget’s theory of the Interactional Approach to child development. We provide developmentally appropriate and challenging activities that enhance a child’s physical, emotional, intellectual and social well-being.
We believe that early skills are learned best through a fine balance of self exploration, direct instruction activities, hands-ons activities, songs, stories, art projects, cooking projects, gross-motor and fine-motor activities.
The school is well equipped with a variety of materials which are both fun and educational for children. The staff is caring, nurturing and energetic.
Eagles Nest Preschool operates on the St. Lucie County School Board calendar. This school is closed when the St. Lucie County public schools are closed.
$100 weekly tuition includes:
