Message from Keri Rifkin,
School Director

Our preschool program at McDowell School offers your children a safe and nurturing environment to learn and grow from age 3 through their transition to Private Kindergarten and Elementary School. Your child will flourish in small class size with seasoned staff who have an average of 15 years tenure. Our program is a balance of developmental and academic curriculum, providing our children with intellectual benefits, emotional confidence, social growth and physical well-being.

Developmental Assessments are administered in order to plan and implement activities to enrich and challenge each child. Throughout our program children are consistently encouraged to express and be creative. Our preschoolers participate in specialty classes including Spanish, P.E. and hands-on computer instruction. Field trips and assemblies are planned to further expand our program.

Our family-friendly environment encourages parent participation as we partner together to ensure their children’s growth and development at McDowell School. Our “open door” policy creates an atmosphere of mutual teamwork.

I look forward to showing you and your children our wonderful McDowell School!

Keri Rifkin
School Director
