Our Philosophy

The philosophy of the Graham Academy Preschool at the Washington Pavilion is to provide a program for the whole child, using investigation and play to explore the areas of science, technology, engineering, art and math.

Our Curriculum

The Graham Academy Preschool curriculum stimulates confidence, creativity and encourages critical thinking skills through project-based investigations. This curriculum coupled with opportunities to explore the unique experiences at the Washington Pavilion create a one of a kind preschool experience. 

STEAM Preschool Experiences in Action

  • Weekly opportunities to engage with the interactive exhibits at the Kirby Science Discovery Center
  • Guided tours with our curators to look at the exhibitions and learn the basic concepts of art
  • Attend matinee performances of shows throughout the school year

Our preschoolers develop a broad knowledge base of the world around them through experiential learning. Their teachers accept them as individuals and encourage each child to progress at his or her own pace, laying the foundations for language, beginning academic skills and social skills. 

2023-24 Tuition Rates


Qualified Teaching Professionals

Each class will have one lead teacher certified in early childhood education and one assistant teacher with an education background. All of our classes have a small student-to-teacher ratio with a maximum of 15-16 students per class. On occasion, specialists in fields such as music, art, science, foreign language or performing arts will serve as guest instructors, furthering your child’s education with authentic experiences.

Additional Care Options

Enjoy the convenience of early drop-off for your preschooler! A staff member will be available in the preschool classroom (3rd floor) starting at 8 a.m. Students will explore and play before preschool begins with the rest of the class at 9 a.m.
