Elite Academics – fostering learning, leadership, communication, and character.

Early Childhood

At the Guthrie School, we believe early childhood education and development from ages three through six is fundamental for future success.

Through our Early Childhood Education Program, we strive to ensure the social, emotional, and academic development of these young students through our thoughtfully designed curriculum. Building self-confidence and enhancing a love for learning, combined with strong character development, are the hallmarks of success at Guthrie where our students are prepared to be leaders as they enter their elementary classrooms.
