Our School

PPNS Preschool is a Kailua-based program for children ages 3 through 5. This little green school is a private, non-profit group managed by the parents of children who attend the school. Parents volunteers collaborate with our administrative staff and teachers to make PPNS a wonderful preschool experience for all.  This community environment leads to long-lasting friendships and a support network, which is always a benefit to parents of young children.

Our center provides hands-on, play-based learning through intentional and thoughtful teaching that creates opportunities for children to develop a sense of the world through inquiry, exploration, interaction, and problem solving, supported by a blended emergent curriculum that combines the Hawaii Early Learning and Developmental standards, Creative Curriculum and NAEYC accreditation standards.

We believe in focusing on the Social-Emotional development of that age group preferring indirect adult guidance that allows children to find their own resolving solutions.
