What we do Differently

We Inspire

Beyond utilizing a world-class curriculum far exceeding peer preschools in both focus and comprehensiveness, we empower our skilled teachers to integrate cognitive skills with experiential learning to capture young imaginations, inspire new and different thinking, and make little hearts sing.

We Understand

We invest as much time as necessary to truly understand every child in every preschool class – how they listen, how they communicate, what makes them laugh – so that we can more effectively guide individual development and accurately calibrate ongoing progress.

We Communicate

Appreciating that families may be unable to visit our St. Petersburg campus as often as they might like, our teachers work tirelessly to ensure every parent receives details of their child’s experiences each day and has the opportunity to talk about them, even if that means calling a teacher at home after work.

We Recruit

We prioritize hiring the most expert and passionate teachers, because we know that the difference between a good teacher and a great teacher can sometimes mean the difference between a child succeeding and a child shining.

We Innovate

Led by one of the most expert Early Childhood educators in all of Florida, we design curricula that leverage innovations in teaching and learning, the most current brain research, and the individual strengths and experiences of our talented teachers so that young students and their families receive the best Pre K education in Tampa Bay.
"The Experiential School of Tampa Bay and all the educators have exceeded all of our expectations. We are especially impressed with the real world approach to learning. Our child has had many amazing hands-on experiences from gardening to exploring adventures. The explosion of growth, confidence and excitement in our child is priceless! The greatest testament is the huge smile on her face, knowing she’ll spend the day at Shorecrest!"
