The Beagle School

The Beagle School of Saratoga Springs  •  115 Regent Street  •  587-7507

Our school is dedicated to exploration, discovery and the
sense of wonder that belonged to Charles Darwin and his
ship, The HMS Beagle.The mission of The Beagle School
is to provide a quality preschool educational program which
fosters the sense of wonder and discovery that naturally
exists in all children. Through a variety of enriching
experiences, children will be supported in all areas of
development with a particular emphasis on such traits as
self-motivation, responsibility, and creativity.
This will be accomplished through The Beagle School
working together with families to assure a safe and nurturing
environment for each child.

Two Year Old Program

A warm, cheerful, non-academic introduction to the school experience is the emphasis of this program. Through group play, art, activities, poems and stories, the children are encouraged to share and discover. Classes meet two days a week from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. (Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday). The maximum number of children per class is ten, with a teacher and an assistant. Children must be two years old on or before
September 1.

Morning and Afternoon Programs

The children’s natural curiosity helps us to develop a theme approach to learning where they are given opportunities for creative play, stories and poems, field trips, art projects and time outdoors. Our pre-reading and math activities are open-ended so each child can achieve success according to her or his abilities. The daily schedule is flexible to accommodate the needs and interests of the children.

Our student ratio is 7-1. Morning classes meet from 9:00 a.m. to noon, and the afternoon classes meet from 12:40 – 3:40 p.m. Children who are 3 years old on or before December 1 are eligible for our Tuesday/Thursday classes. Children who are 4 years old on or before December 1 are eligible for the Monday/Wednesday/Friday morning and afternoon programs.

    Both of my children love The Beagle School! My daughter went through all 3 years at the school and was so well-prepared for kindergarten. My son is in his last year and has learned so much and is very happy there!

    After some unexpected initial separation anxiety, my three-year-old now dances happily into her classroom each morning, thanks to her loving teachers and the exciting curriculum at the Beagle School.

    The Beagle School has been a wonderful place for our family. I have one child who has been through the program, one who is currently in it and one that will be coming up through. The teachers are kind and caring and the school provides a great foundation for kids to learn and grow. We love The Beagle School and wouldn’t go anywhere else!

    Our experience at The Beagle School has been incredible! I have witnessed 2 of my children grow, learn and blossom through all three years at The Beagle School. I am eagerly anticipating my 3rd child to play and learn in the same classrooms! I highly recommend The Beagle School!

    My son attended the two year old program at Beagle and absolutely loved it! The teachers were incredible and it was a very nurturing and caring environment for the children. He’s since moved on to “The Big Beagle School” and has continued to learn and grow under the direction of a great teacher.

    My son went through 3 years of the Beagle School and loved it. He happily went off to school every morning, and he still talks about how much he loves his Beagle School teachers. My 3-year old is in the Tu/Th class and is thriving in the warm and nurturing environment provided by the teachers.
