The University Lake School Preprimary, or Preschool, Program is comprised of grades JK3, JK4 and SK.

ULS believes our preprimary — or preschool — students should be respected as capable, curious and inquisitive. Teachers encourage students to observe, question, hypothesize and experiment in meaningful investigations. Students use the strategies of mathematicians, scientists, authors and artists during these investigations. With this approach, our preprimary students’ learning extends far beyond basic skills. Most importantly, students advance to the Lower School excited about learning, with a solid foundation to further develop lifelong learning skills. Our Preprimary program is held in the Manegold Building.


Reggio Emilia Approach

University Lake School’s preprimary programs reflect the internationally recognized Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood and preschool education which fosters:

  • the interest of each child
  • in-depth investigations
  • collaborative group work
  • dramatic play
  • communication skills
  • critical thinking skills

Because they are encouraged to observe, question, hypothesize and experiment in authentic, meaningful investigations, the children’s learning extends far beyond basic skills.
