More Than Preschool

By developing a curriculum that is unlike any other school in Tampa Bay – one built upon experiential learning, true expertise in child development, a culture that encourages individuality, generous and forward-thinking parents, and maybe just a touch of magic courtesy of our amazing teachers - The Experiential School of Tampa Bay consistently graduates children into Kindergarten who simply see the world differently.
From the fleeting tickle of a butterfly’s wings, to the ripe smell of the native vegetation on our sprawling and secure campus, your child will live learning every day while at Shorecrest, forever awakening a yearning to experience this great world of ours firsthand.

Think for Yourself

We teach the art and science of asking the right questions and the utility and reward of actively participating in finding solutions, leading to people who think both independently and creatively.

Feel Good About You

Recognizing that the seeds of a child’s sense of self are often sown in these early years of development, we continuously nurture your child, loudly encourage them, gently challenge them and we always, always, always applaud them for their individual efforts to learn and grow.

Measure Your Progress

While a parent might look into a classroom and not fully understand the raw mechanics of its curriculum or the rationale behind the pedagogy, our teachers – each one possessing a degree in Early Childhood Education – are ever-accessible night and day to answer your questions and to keep you apprised of your child’s daily challenges and triumphs.
"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!"
