Experiential Learning

Wardlaw + Hartridge offers a private, early education program for PreK & Kindergarten children in New Jersey.  Hands-on experiential learning is the heart of our early childhood classrooms. Our curriculum is inspired by children's curiosity and natural inclinations to learn. Through exploration and discovery, young children develop their social skills, cognitive abilities and physical prowess. We encourage children to experiment and learn through trial and error. In classroom learning centers, children have opportunities to engage in:

  • Dramatic Play
  • Coding and robotics
  • STEM
  • Reading and Math Investigation
  • Puzzles
  • Drawing and Writing
  • Art Exploration
  • Spanish language instruction 

Hands-on literacy, math and science components are woven into our daily curriculum and provide ongoing challenges and skill development. We believe that children need opportunities to express their thinking and feelings in many ways and allow them to do so through the use of various media such as painting, sculpture, shadow play, collage and music.

The curriculum is enriched by experiences with specialist teachers who work with the classroom teachers to integrate Spanish, art, music, and physical education throughout the day. With a focus on curriculum integration and collaboration, specialist teachers regularly offer their expertise in the early childhood program.
