At Wilberforce, our Explorers (preschool) program integrates experiential and disciplined learning. We strive to foster a sense of wonder, exploration, and discovery, as emphasized by Charlotte Mason. Our teachers emphasize a love of learning for each child, engaging both the mind and the heart.
We believe that Wilberforce is a distinctive school where the learning environment is enveloped in a classical Christian foundation.
Our youngest students are “Explorers.”
- Explorers I is our Junior Kindergarten program (preschool), and is open to 4 year-olds and 5 year-olds.
- Explorers II is our Kindergarten program, and is open to 5 year-olds and 6 year-olds.*
Explorers are adventurers on a mission; they are people who examine carefully, investigate, probe, and discover. We believe these young years are years ripe for exploring.
During these essential years prior to entering Class One (first grade), we equip our students for academic success and to introduce them to a lifetime of joyful discovery and rich learning within a context of Christian devotion and worldview.
