Woodbury Preschool at the Strong Museum of Play
Early Childhood Teacher Candidates will have the opportunity to work with children on a Preschool setting using a Reggio-Emilia inspired curriculum.
Woodbury Preschool uses the power of play to nurture each child's learning, creativity, and self-discovery. Through play, children have experiences that introduce and connect them to the larger world, help them develop trust with peers and adults outside of their family, and build their confidence and self-reliance.
