Early education at the Susan Odell Taylor School Taylor School is anything but ordinary.

 Proceeding at his or her own pace, each child discovers how to make connections between their skills and the world around them. Each program allows:

  • Child-centered choice;
  • Outdoor play and discovery;
  • Working cooperatively as a whole group, in small groups, in pairs, individually and in multiage groups.

The day’s activities allow the energy level to fluctuate from calm to boisterous! We showcase our achievements and celebrate successes daily.

But that’s not the best part. The best part is what Taylor School children learn about learning.


Our pre-kindergarten is a busy community, all working together toward the same ultimate goal: becoming competent, confident, independent problem solvers and lifelong learners.

Our pre-kindergarten classroom is a lively place where children experience the joys of learning as they become confident in their understanding of self and community.


The Susan Odell Taylor School kindergarten curriculum is designed to give our students rich and varied experiences as they grow intellectually, socially and emotionally. Kindergartners are challenged to expand their skills and understandings in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. Each child is guided through the curriculum in a nurturing environment that is just right for the curious mind of a kindergartner.

Our kindergarten classroom is a busy place filled with learning and joy that is perfect for the curious and inquisitive minds of 5-6 year olds. Kindergartners at the Susan Odell Taylor School are joyful learners in action!
