Pre-K

At GUS we strongly believe in investing in children’s early education.

Glen Urquhart School is pleased to offer a new, full-day, Monday through Friday pre-K program for children ages 3 to 5, starting in September 2018. The addition of a pre-K program to our current K-8 curriculum creates an opportunity to expand and extend our place- and theme-based program to younger students and their families. With the resources of a K-8 school and full amenities of the 23-acre GUS campus, providing our innovative and progressive curriculum to pre-K learners is a natural extension of our time-tested program. More detailed information about the program will be provided in early February and applications are due by March 16, 2018. Learn more about the GUS pre-K program.
