Our Purpose

Whitehouse Prep is founded on the belief that children should be introduced to the learning environment in a way that is both developmentally appropriate as well as academically challenging. At its core is the guiding principle that the school environment should be one where the child constructs meaning within a learning environment that focuses on educating the whole child by using developmentally appropriate pedagogy that fosters self-confidence and a genuine love of learning. Through our full-day programs, students are able to progress at their own pace and are afforded the time necessary to allow them to develop the academic and social skills to succeed in first grade and beyond. In addition, the school is dedicated to introducing children to notions of social awareness (it is just not “me” in this world) as well as cultivating an appreciation for their environment and nature, respect for others, skills for conflict resolution through peaceful means and the importance and value of intergenerational relationships.


In a sentence, Whitehouse Prep is committed to offering children the best possible start to a lifetime of living and learning.


“Childhood should be a journey . . . not a race.”
