Pre-Primary School

Groupings

Factors taken into consideration when placing children into the three Pre-Primary classrooms:
  • chronological age
  • developmental readiness
  • diversity and balance in each classroom
  • enrollment 
Typical age ranges in the Pre-Primary classrooms:
  • Discovery Room—2.5-year-olds and 3-year-olds 
  • Explorers Room—older 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds 
  • Adventurers Room—4-year-olds and young 5-year-olds 
Children take a variety of paths through the Pre-Primary division and into Kindergarten. Most children are at least five years old when they begin Kindergarten at Lowell.

  • Morning Only (AM)—five-day week, 8:00 am–12:15 pm 
  • All Day (AD)—five-day week, 8:00 am–3:15 pm
