Countless early childhood education studies promote the long-range benefits of exposing young children to basic concepts in literacy, math, and to peer interactions. As our understanding of early learning has evolved, we have come to know that a progressive curriculum is especially beneficial and effective for intellectual, emotional, and social development. But what is progressive education?

Simply put, progressive education is a philosophy that recognizes learning to be experiential, emergent, and collaborative. Progressive educators know that how lessons are taught is just as important as the lessons themselves, and that the most adept learners are those who are inspired to learn.

Progressive education recognizes that learning should be authentic and enjoyable, and that the best teachers are those who encourage children to play an active role in their own development. Progressive teachers know the importance of helping children flourish both individually and as part of a group.

At The School in Rose Valley, progressive learning is at the very core of our philosophy. We encourage students to explore their academic and non-academic interests while providing them with a foundation for success both inside and outside of the classroom.

We offer programs for children in preschool through sixth grade. You can learn more about our curriculums here. If you would like to schedule a visit or learn how to apply, call us today at 610-566-1088 or send us an email at
