About Princeton Early Prep School
Princeton Early Prep provides a comprehensive preschool education which engages the whole child. Daily teaching and learning objectives that will focus on the child’s development in the following areas: Social, Emotional, Physical, and Cognitive. They believe parents are a child’s first and primary teacher; so we encourage parent involvement in our program and insight into your child’s unique learning style.
Montessori is a scientific method of education, a philosophy of child development, and an approach to children that helps them maximize their potential. Doctor Maria Montessori, who lived from 1870 to 1952 was a brilliant and original educator. Her most important discovery was that children learn in a fundamentally different way than adults. A child, for example, learns his or her native tongue by hearing and imitating. Anyone who has learned a second language as an adult can appreciate what an enormously complex task it is. The young child, however, has an innate volume to “absorb” language as well as other types of knowledge spontaneously.
The students will have the opportunity to take part in on-site Spanish each week, and yoga classes. Creative Dance and Modern Movement classes will also be offered on site by Ms. Tiffany’s dance studio, as well as gymnastics classes, and Chess Club. Additionally, we will have many visiting resources that will accompany our thematic lessons.
Every morning we will continue our morning work cycles and group lessons concentrating on the weekly units. Wednesdays we will have Library Day, and each child will be able to check out a book from the traveling library. Every Friday we will have outdoor picnics and water-play. We will have a theme for each week of summer day camp. Information regarding the various themes is as follows:
June 11th-15th: THE ARTIST IN ME- Children will be introduced to Picasso, Warhol, O’Keeffe, and other artists from throughout time, and can try out different techniques such as sculpting, pastels, and papermaking as we bring out the artist in all of us! Thursday, parents will be able to enjoy a display of work, and Friday we will send home your child’s art portfolio.
June 18th-June 22nd-ADVENTURES IN READING- This is a one of a kind reading / writing workshop that will not feel like work at all! Children will enjoy the works of Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, Maurice Sendak, and Eric Carle. Students will morph into “wild things” and characters from “Cat in the Hat”. We will become authors and illustrators of our very own “professional-style publications” and receive book-filled themed backpacks as a special gift to encourage reading at home!
June 25th-June 29th– MAD SCIENTISTS LABORATORY- We’re going mad about science this week as Ithaka is transformed into a learning laboratory! We will be performing experiments aplenty, including making our own crystals, slime, and volcanoes.

July 9th– July 13th – MAKE IT TAKE IT WORKSHOP- Every day this week students will take part in a make it-take it workshop.

July 16th-July 20th– HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW? – We’re rolling up our sleeves and digging in to Mother Earth this week as we learn about the life cycle of plants and sow some seeds of our own.
