Early Childhood Program
We are proud to be Rochester's premier museum-based preschool! Over 3000 Rochester-area children have attended the Preschool over the last 35 + years, enjoying a child-centered, developmentally appropriate program facilitated by a warm and caring staff. We work closely with parents to serve the best interest of every child and family.
Our curriculum provides unique educational experiences which enhance a traditional preschool program. We take advantage of the exhibits, collections and resources of the entire RMSC. On-site visits to the Rochester Museum, the Strasenburgh Planetarium and the Cumming Nature Center in the Bristol Hills are an integral part of the program.
The curriculum stimulates exploration and encourages problem-solving skills, creativity, and social and emotional growth. Our preschoolers develop a broad knowledge base about the world around them. Their teachers accept them as individuals and encourage each child to progress at his or her own pace laying the foundations for language and beginning academic skills.
If you are considering enrolling your child, please call the Head of Preschool (585)697-1949 to have your questions answered or to schedule a tour.
