A memorable, meaningful first school experience.

M Shield

A joyous and happy Pre-Kindergarten experience can set the stage for a lifetime of learning. That’s why Maclay’s Pre-K classrooms are designed to engage students in fun, hands-on activities that nurture each child’s curiosity.

A nurturing environment with creative learning opportunities leads to successful beginnings.

Our multi-sensory curriculum includes daily activities and play-based instruction in language arts, math, science, social studies, art, music, movement, and drama. It’s the perfect first experience to develop engaged learners who are ready to advance their skills in Lower School. 

The Right Place to Grow and Learn

Our goal is to engage our students in fun, hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities that nurture each child's curiosity.

"Maclay Pre-K has shared love, safety, knowledge, kindness, and a thoughtful space to start out each day. Maclay focuses on our family as individuals, the whole being, and how we can contribute to the school community." Carrie McNeill
