    Our unique, sensory focused developmentally appropriate curriculum is aligned with the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Four Year Olds and Teaching Strategies Gold Objectives for development and Learning. We honor childhood with playful learning experiences for children that include loose parts and natural materials. Free play and guided play lead to joyful and conceptually rich learning experiences for children. During guided play, the teacher provides guidance to help a child make a meaningful connection or practice a skill in context with immediate feedback. In addition, children develop skills in symbolic representation, spatial reasoning and social-emotional skills as they engage in play with their peers. All of these skills positively impact academic learning. Children’s social and emotional competence is predictive of their success in school.

  • Collage Day School empowers children to succeed as skilled communicators, keen observers of nature, and creative thinkers to become responsible citizens and innovative leaders.

    Collage is a Reggio-inspired school which calls children to linger, explore and discover.  Our classrooms are aesthetically arranged to engage the senses in a calm and peaceful environment.  Children learn age appropriate skills through hands-on investigations that are open-ended and child directed.  In our full day programs, children attend music, art, and yoga classes.  All of our VPK children spend time in our natural setting and observe and interact with our school pets which include chickens, rabbits and a pot belly pig.  Our classes are small with a 1:9 ratio with a maximum of 18 children in a class. Our students perform very well on their VPK assessments and demonstrate creativity, self-control, persistence and confidence.

    Our VPK teachers are creative and highly qualified educators with over 10 years of experience working with preschool age children.  Each day in our VPK classrooms is memorable.  Come join our VPK family and watch your child thrive in this unique learning environment.
