Stephens College Children's School named Preschool of the Year

December 2, 2013

Stephens College Children’s School was named Preschool of the Year in a Parent’s Pick contest sponsored by Hulafrog of Columbia.

Only five votes separated the top three schools, according to Hulafrog.

“We’re thrilled,” said Leslie Willey, director and Dean of the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at Stephens. “We know we provide an excellent educational experience, but we also know we are in good company. We’re honored that parents recognized us.”

Hulafrog is a website that provides information on kid-friendly businesses and events.

Stephens College Children’s School, which offers preschool through fifth grade, was founded in 1925. The school offers small classroomsettings, where children get personalized attention from master-level teachers, as well as Stephens education majors who serve as teachers’ aides.

Programs include half-day preschool and full-day preschool for ages 3 to 5. Both are designed to support the whole child, including social, emotional, cognitive, academic and physical growth. At the elementary level, students are grouped by ability rather than age.
