The Lower School consists of K3 through fifth grade. During these years, Piedmont maintains close communication and interaction with parents, an essential factor in the successful progress of a child.
A classroom becomes the child's home for eight hours. At Piedmont, the second home is inviting and creative, managed by a professional who knows that a positive self-image is the greatest lifelong gift a teacher can bestow. Recognizing that children learn differently, Lower School teachers incorporate visual, auditory, and kinesthetic methods of instruction. Self contained classrooms assure a stable learning environment, while some degree of departmentalization enables students to benefit from the special talents of other teachers.
In choosing Piedmont for the Lower School years, parents can be certain that they are entrusting their small child to caring adults who will nurture his/her feelings in an environment which is secure, happy, and richly stimulating.
