PreK at The Hundred Acre School

Our full day PreK program began in 2014 with only 16 students. Since then, the PreK program has grown to consistently being filled to capacity. Our high-quality curriculum is taught by talented educators who utilize the unique location of our school in a museum, botanical garden and natural environment to create experiences your child just can’t get anywhere else. Our STEM-focused curriculum is taught through play, learning activities, and collaboration with their peers.

Our program is a full day from 9 a.m. – 3 p,m.

3, 4 or 5 day programs available: We have a 3 day minimum enrollment. At the time of your application, you can select your ideal schedule.

Students are accepted on a rolling basis until the program is full. We typically have students from Sandwich and many towns on and off Cape Cod.

The PreK program opened in the 2021 renovated wing with two spacious PreK classrooms with maximum capacity of 18-20 students per day.

Our maximum student-teacher ratio is 10:1 which is determined by licensing regulation however we typically staff our classrooms at a 7:1 ratio.

Our PreK teachers are licensed and have at least a Bachelors degree in education or a related field, learn more here.
