About Our Preschool

Our mission is to bring out the  extraordinary in every child. We provide optimal educational and support programs to every child that enters our doors. Our experience since 2001 has led us to the development of the highest quality, cutting-edge preschool program in a state-of-the-art facility!

Steps to Success

img_3School of Imagination’s preschool classes are arranged in “Steps” to ensure that each child receives a comprehensive educational experience. Your child’s placement is based upon both their age and developmental level. “Step 1” is for 2-3 year-olds, “Step 2” is for children ages 3-4 year-olds, “Step 3” is for 4-5 year-olds. Your child remains in their “home classroom” for a full school year and additional support or more challenging work is brought to them. This allows each child to experience a consistent “classroom family” that grow and develop together.

If you are unsure as to what “Step” is best for your child, the Team at SOI will meet with your family to help!

Excellence in AcademicsAlphabetPoint_1320523808805

Academic excellence is a value we hold high at SOI!  We have developed superior educational opportunities to encourage a lifelong love of learning!  At School of Imagination, we individualize our educational program to meet each students’ unique learning styles.  Thanks to our small class sizes and low teacher-to-student ratios, each child receives individual attention and instruction.  We incorporate research-based programs including “Handwriting Without Tears” and “Zoophonics” within our structured, developmentally appropriate curriculum.  Many leading educators have lauded our program as one of the most cutting-edge educational programs in the nation!

Low Ratios and Small Class Sizes

School of Imagination offers the optimal environment for children to learn!  We provide small class sizes to ensure that your child is not lost or overwhelmed.  Class sizes range from 12 children in “Steps 1 and 2” to 15 children in “Steps 3 and 4”.  In order to make sure that your child receives plenty of individualized attention, each class is staffed with a Lead Preschool Teacher and two assistants.  Our “classroom family” stays consistent throughout the school year which allows for wonderful relationships to grow and develop!

Academic School Year

School of Imagination is a year-round program running from September to August. Children remain in their “home classrooms” throughout the entire year.  We follow the Dublin school calendar for vacations.

School of Imagination offers additional fun and educational summer programming!

Special Events

School of Imagination believes that every day is special!  Children learn in many different ways, so we bring experiences to SOI and participate in enriching community programs.  Each year, you’ll find our children and families in the Dublin St Patrick’s Day Parade, a wonderful Halloween celebration, and you can always count on surprise Special visitors during the holiday season.  Our annual Spring Fling and “Step-Up” ceremony are fabulous events!  Your family participation is not just allowed… it’s encouraged!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is SOI appropriate for?

Whether your child is gifted, active, or has special needs, SOI analyzes each child’s development and creates the optimal program to strengthen their individual talents and gifts.  Our highly trained staff and cutting edge curriculum makes SOI a premier preschool program.

How are the classes staffed?

Each classroom consists of three credentialed teachers who work in concert with the parents and child’s educational team.  Small class sizes and low student to teachers ratios ensure each child’s needs, and potential, are met.

What will my child learn?

Our preschool curriculum was specifically developed to prepare children for kindergarten in the region’s top school districts.  In addition to the standard preschool skills, our partners Microsoft, Cisco Systems and Chevron, have provided SOI tools enabling us to appropriately introduce our children to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  

What is the enrollment process?

1)  Submit the secure smart form and let us know what you need.

2) You will be prompted to schedule an Open House tour.

What can I expect during the Open House

The Open House provides an opportunity to observe the classrooms in session and learn about the programs and services SOI offers.  The Tour takes about 60 minutes and your child is welcome to attend. We host Open Houses/ School Tours with a small group of parents on every Wednesday at 9:45am.  During the Open House, our Preschool Director will give you a tour and offer you a better understanding of our mission, program curricula of each class, ratios, and individual class activities.  You will be able to view the classes and ask questions to help ensure the best placement for your child.  We conclude the Open House on the playground, where we can spend more time getting to know each other.
