Why Landmark?

Landmark PhilosophyEarly childhood is celebrated at Landmark. It is a time of wonder, enthusiasm, and boundless energy! Our passion is to encourage young children to explore, discover, and enjoy new challenges. We dedicate ourselves to helping each child discover his or her intrinsic talents in a stimulating, nurturing, and creative environment. Our inspiring learning curriculum has been developed over 40 years by educators who believe learning should be fun and developmentally appropriate.

"Preschool is a very critical learning opportunity for children. We know that a child experiences the most rapid brain development between the ages of birth and seven years old." ~ Director, Landmark Preschool - Westport
Joyful Learning and Academic ExcellenceWe believe children are curious, capable, and ready to learn at an early age. Our program engages children in dynamic learning activities that provide an introduction to academics, socialization, and develops life skills. Concepts such as colors, shapes, letters and numbers are introduced through songs, stories, sensory activities, art and free play. Character building, positive values, and respect for others are essential components of each amazing day. Our unique approach has been finely tuned to help each child maximize his or her innate ability to learn. Our low student-to-teacher ratios ensure the care and attention your child needs to blossom.
 

Landmark Programs Landmark Preschools offer a continuum of learning programs for children ages 1-5 years old.

Ones Program

It's Fun To Be One!

You and your child can enjoy developmentally appropriate art projects, music and movement, stories and playground time together in our dynamic and creative Fun for Ones program. (All Campuses)

Twos Program

It's Terrific To Be Two!

Children take their first steps toward independence as they join our stimulating Twos Program without a parent and work with veteran teachers. (All Campuses)

Threes Program

The Threes Thrive At Landmark!

Children entering the Threes program are more independent and ready for increased challenges. We introduce students to the Handwriting without Tears program and begin using manipulatives to teach basic math concepts. World language, technology, literacy, physical education, the arts and science are taught through a monthly theme. (All Campuses)

Fours Program

It's Fabulous To Be Four!

Learning is a playful, social experience in our Fours program (link). Teachers use games and manipulatives to introduce math, phonics and writing skills. Art, music, technology, physical education, science, world language and off-campus field trips further enrich this program. (All Campuses)

Fives Program

It's Fantastic To Be Five!

Our Fives Program offers a Kindergarten level curriculum taught in a small, personalized classroom environment, using a hands-on-approach to learning. At the conclusion of the program, students have completed a full Kindergarten curriculum and can proceed to first grade, although many parents choose to have their child attend our Kindergarten program. (Redding Campus)

Fundamentals Program

We Put The "Fun" in Fundamentals!

The Fundamentals program at Landmark combines the best elements of our Fives and Kindergarten programs to offer a highly personalized learning experience for your child. Low teacher to student ratios allow us to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of each student. This enriched and engaging program provides your child with the excitement of new challenges exploring a curriculum that uses stimulating, multi-sensory materials in a supportive hands-on environment. At the same time, children benefit from a small, nurturing classroom that promotes self-confidence, and empowers students to achieve their full potential. Five full days a week from 8:15 – 3:00. (Westport Campus)

Kindergarten

Continue the Excellence at Ridgefield Academy

Children age five and older have the opportunity to continue our program on our Ridgefield Academy campus, an independent day school for students in Kindergarten through Grade 8. (All Campuses)

“Children love to play. At Landmark we incorporate all kinds of games into our curriculum so that we can be teaching academic concepts during the course of the day and they are having fun doing it.” ~ Director, Landmark Preschool - Redding

"Working at Landmark for over 25 years has truly been the most fulfilling job ever. Each day brings new and rewarding experiences. It’s gratifying to watch the smiles on each child’s face as they explore, discover and learn new things. The dedicated staff, nurturing environment and rich curriculum are just a few of the components that make Landmark a truly remarkable preschool. Working in a small class size has given me the opportunity to get to know each child on a personal level. I have had the privilege of developing life-long friendships with many Landmark families. I have not only been able to witness the excellence of Landmark from a teacher's point of view, but from a parent's as well. My children attended Landmark and still reminisce about their fun days there. Landmark has not only given them a strong academic foundation, but has more importantly instilled a love for learning. I am honored to teach at such a special place and be part of a team that is truly dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children. I am especially proud of our Fundamentals program. This program integrates the Kindergarten and Fives curriculum in a personalized, child-friendly approach."
 
~ Donna Parrillo, Fundamentals Head Teacher
"It is a pleasure to work at a school that is filled with enthusiastic students, supportive parents and passionate teachers. I love our curriculum; it's stimulating and exciting and our students are captivated by our monthly themes."
 
~ Megan Maloney, Fours Head Teacher
"Being part of the Landmark community for the past twelve years has been life changing. I have had the privilege of teaching entire families in the fours program. The relationships I share with parents, faculty and administration are built on the mutual goal of providing top notch, cutting edge and developmentally appropriate learning experiences for our preschoolers. No other profession could provide me with as many opportunities to explore my creative and nurturing side in such a fun and challenging way. The children keep me young and the ultimate reward is seeing their proud little faces every June. I love my school and feel honored to be part of a great team."
~ Meg D'Onofrio, Fours Head Teacher
"When I meet new people and they find out I teach preschool, a common question often follows. “Is the preschool where you teach, play based or academic based?” This question continues to remind me why I love teaching at Landmark. Isn’t learning new concepts supposed to be fun? At Landmark, the answer to this question is always yes. Through play and games, students at Landmark Academy learn to become independent, enthusiastic, and creative lifelong learners. When children sing and dance and act out stories, they are learning literacy. When they sort and stack blocks, they are learning mathematical concepts. When they are interacting with one another in the kitchen area or dramatic play center, they are learning social skills. While investigating and exploring in the sensory tables, they are learning science. At Landmark Academy our students are learning while playing and having fun. Our students do all this with the guidance of a well-educated and nurturing staff. I love that all of the teachers at Landmark know the names of most of the students in the school and not only the ones in their class. I love that they show support and concern for every student and not only the ones they are teaching. Working at Landmark feels like being a part of a large family. Everyone, from the staff and the parents, are supportive of one another. We take the time to know our families and their independent needs and concerns. The atmosphere at Landmark is always fun and relaxed. The camaraderie amongst my peers and the love and support of my children’s parents, makes it a great environment to work in. We have great support not only from our fellow teachers and parents but from everyone in the school."
