Reopening Fall 2018

The Selwyn Family is eager to reopen our Pre-K Program and extend our unique style of education to the young people who, according to significant research, might benefit from it the most.

The Argyle Preschool Program at Selwyn School is specifically designed to provide an exciting, open and engaging experiential learning environment for children ages 3-5 in a colorful, fun and visually stimulating indoor-outdoor space. The cutting-edge building offers an environment that encourages a life-long love for learning. Each classroom has both indoor and outdoor spaces, perfect for nurturing the natural curiosity of children and meeting their desire to engage with the world around them.

Child-Centric Education, Play-Based Learning

Our Pre-K Program is inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy, a belief that children learn best from three different educators: their parents, their school teachers, and their environment. This is why we’ve worked so hard to create a learning space that will immerse our young students in a highly stimulating environment that embraces their love of learning from all three types of instructors. In our program, each child will receive the individualized attention they need and deserve. Our teachers will actively involve you in your child’s education so the learning process can continue at home.

Children learn best by interacting with their environment, which is why our Pre-K students enjoy play as one of the essential elements of their educational experience. The indoor-outdoor spaces of our Pre-K classrooms encourages and allows the learning process to flow freely from inside to outside, and back again throughout the day. It’s the ideal space to elevate curiosity to discovery, then discovery to learning.

“The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn’t need to be reformed — it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.”

-Sir Ken Robinson, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything

A Comprehensive Educational Experience

As a member of the National Association of Independent Schools, Selwyn School provides one of the most thoroughly comprehensive and developmentally appropriate array of student-focused learning experiences in the Denton County area.

Our Pre-K Program was created with progress in mind. Studies support the idea that early childhood education is more than learning primary colors, promoting language and literacy skills, and beginning to establish mathematical competencies. While our Pre-K Program prepares children for the fundamental building blocks of learning we offer in our Lower School kindergarten classes: listening, reading, writing, and arithmetic, we also focus on the social and emotional aspects of childhood development to further ensure all of our students can grow up to be happy, healthy, and successful adults.
