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
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.
