The philosophy at Wilkes School Preschool Program is to promote the social emotional growth of the children, preparing them for future educational endeavors, while still tuning in to their individual strengths and needs. The curriculum is based on the developmental milestones for 2-, 3-, and 4- year olds and aligns with the Maryland state standards. The school is able to adjust the program to fit the needs of each child while still maintaining the integrity of the program.

A typical day for the preschool is a balance of teacher-led and independent activities. Educators teach Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, as well as, all of the specialty areas. Children experience hands-on activities, with an emphasis of literature and language. The activities are based on the developmental needs of the children and can and do fluctuate between groups of children to ensure everyone is finding success.
