"We are here to enjoy!"

Our early childhood curriculum is designed to enliven your child's experience of inner happiness and self-confidence, to enrich his/her imagination, and encourage positive social interaction. Our unique curriculum introduces the Science of Creative Intelligence (SCI), an interactive program that encourages your child to see connections between him/herself and the Natural Law displayed in the world. Your child's appreciation of the wonder of life will be enlivened through simple principles such as “The nature of life is to grow.” Through play-oriented activities - songs, stories, nature study, cooking, art, and sport - these SCI principles are enlivened and understood.

Preschool children are 2–4 years old by September 15, 2010. Preschool children have the option to attend class two, three, four, or five mornings per week - see Tuition Information for rates. In addition, this year Maharishi School will be offering a new all day preschool and childcare combination program. This program has been designed primarily in support of families in which both parents are working or continuing their own education.

At Maharishi Preschool, high standards are maintained for each child’s happiness, comfort, and ability to cooperate in a group. Preschool should be easy and nourishing for the child and the School reserves the right to decide that a child is not ready for the program. In this case, the Preschool Director will discuss the situation with the parents, and a pro-rated refund will be given.
