Our preschool is staffed by two trained teachers and follows the State of CT Early Developmental Guidelines (CT ELDS) in planning and implementing curriculum.  These skills are interwoven into the school day and children have opportunities to work on them consistently while engaged in play.

Daily activities include art, circle time, blocks and building, stories, science activities, and outside time.  There are several family events held each year including family brunches, and an end-of-the-year picnic.  Parents are invited into the classroom at any time to observe, facilitate an activity or to read a story to the children! This may be limited due to Safety Requirements during COVID 19.

Our preschool provides RHAM High School students taking relevant coursework, with an understanding of child development through observation and interaction.  This supplements students’ book learning with hands-on experience in the preschool classroom.  High school students are a wonderful addition to our program helping preschoolers with small group and individual activities. RHAM Students’ participation may be delayed or suspended in order to comply with COVID19 health protocols, as determined by RHAM School District and AHM Administrators.

KinderRHAMa is located within the RHAM High School building.  Our location provides many enrichment opportunities for little ones.  Some of these have included sitting in the big auditorium to hear band and chorus concerts, viewing beautifully constructed gingerbread houses by the Foods Classes, and seeing newly hatched chicks in the Genetics Lab. These activities may be suspended to comply with adjustments due to COVID 19 prevention.

Current and future parents, please reference our 2022-2023 KinderRHAMa Parent Handbook for helpful information, including the school calendar.
