Full of big ideas and not sure what to do with them, pre-kindergarteners at Rain­tree learn to scale and plan.  Young peo­ple are fas­ci­nat­ing.  Young peo­ple who have spent their early child­hood years learn­ing to make their dreams hap­pen are extra­or­di­nary.

But want­ing to make a movie with com­mer­cials, cred­its, sound effects, a set, and furry fab­ric paws on the dog char­ac­ters and know­ing how to, are two very dif­fer­ent things.  Therein lies the rub.


Pre-kindergarten is about fear­less­ness, patience, and know­ing what you wish to learn.  With minds burst­ing with ideas, some of the most intrigu­ing thoughts aren’t really thunk yet.  It is this year Rain­tree stu­dents learn advanced orga­ni­za­tion tech­niques, ways to research, and delve deeper in the mul­ti­ple intel­li­gences that can be used to con­tribute to a project.  This year, Rain­tree chil­dren learn to cap­ture their strengths and see them­selves in a new light.


Full-time atten­dance option avail­able for chil­dren aged 4 by August 1st.

a place where children are engaged in civic mindfulness; where young citizens share a sense of common good, intellectual courage and a love for all things wild.
