EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAM [AGES 3–5]
Welcome to Fillmore House, Forsyth's Early Childhood Center! This is the place to begin at Forsyth if you have a child who is ready for Pre-Kindergarten (age 3 by August 1) or Junior-Kindergarten (age 4 by August 1). Forsyth's early childhood faculty are dedicated, experienced, and highly educated teachers. Special classes include Library, Movement & Music, Physical Education (beginning in Junior-Kindergarten), Science, Spanish, and Yoga. The engaging curriculum is a cohesive continuum across all grade levels, so starting in Pre-Kindergarten or Junior-Kindergarten well prepares children for the primary grades.
Fillmore House is set apart from the rest of campus, with its own playgrounds and gardens—but Forsyth's youngest students learn very early on that they are part of the larger school community. They attend assemblies, plays, and academic events; cross campus to the library and gymnasium; and spend time with their "Big Friends" in Grades 5 and 6.
Forsyth School follows the State of Missouri's age cut-off (August 1) as a general guideline; however, applicant placement is dependent upon developmental readiness. Contact DeAnn Pomatto, Director of Admission, to schedule your visit.
