Program Description

Our Philosophy:

Children are natural born innovators and creators. They have the gift of Inquition(™); a blend of inquiry, imagination and intuition that leads to innovation. Rather than leading them, our job is to nurture and protect their natural proclivities by creating an environment that allows them to express themselves in their own unique ways. The purpose of The InQ School is to do just that in a peaceful and gentle setting while balancing their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs.

What’s so special about our school?

Small class size: Only 8 children (ages 3-6) in the classroom with two teachers as opposed to 20+ in a typical preschool classroom setting. It offers teachers an incredible opportunity to be the best.
Whole Child Development: We strive to give a lot emphasis for the development of all aspects of a child and not just academics. We’ve carefully designed the daily and weekly activities to include physical body development, nature and garden activities, cooking, art, music, craft, pretend play and outdoor play.
Home Based: Warm, nurturing and gentle environment.
Unique Curriculum – We are developing our curriculum by blending the best of many educational philosophies such as Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Forest Schools and Waldorf.
Global Outlook: We celebrate all major cultures and religions to develop global citizens.
Safe and secure: Everyone is Covid vaccinated. We did not have any COVID related closures in the past 2 years. The home is in a safe neighborhood and the classroom is in a secure space.
