In their early years, kids are like sponges, absorbing everything around them as they make discoveries and encounter new concepts. This natural curiosity is essential for students as they learn — it helps them develop interests, form inquisitive minds, and more confidently explore the world around them.
At BASIS Independent McLean, a PreK–12 private school in Tysons Corner, the Early Learning Program (PreK–Kindergarten) encourages a child’s sense of wonder as they make critical connections and build foundational knowledge. Our curriculum, rooted in the liberal arts and sciences, exposes students to everything from social studies to mathematics, Mandarin to engineering, and more.
Each course block is taught by a different passionate subject expert who thoughtfully creates activities, lessons, and other opportunities for students to interact with materials, use their imagination, and be creative. Students are also led throughout the day by another teacher who provides consistency and individualized support, and who focuses on a student’s social-emotional needs. This unique teaching model allows teachers to strike a balance between nurturing their students and ensuring they develop skills that will help them excel in every endeavor.
