Our teachers are highly qualified, experienced, and are dedicated to teaching young children. Each teacher receives periodic refresher training in the Learning Without Tears curriculum and other required certifications.
Our core academic program is based on "Learning Without Tears—Get Set for School," a research-based and age-appropriate curriculum. A wide variety of enrichment activities supplement this preschool curriculum.
EDS provides its students with a strong spiritual foundation through daily, non-denominational chapel services, where students hear Bible stories that convey age-appropriate principles.
Located in downtown Clemson, our picturesque preschool is conveniently located just across the street from Clemson University.
The core academic period is 9 AM - 12 PM. In addition, EDS offers early morning care and flexible options for afternoon care until 5:30 PM.
Our facilities include classrooms in Holy Trinity Church’s Parish House, a playground with age-appropriate new equipment and ground covering, a large field for sports activities, a pavilion for covered outdoor activities,and gardens where students learn to grow plants and vegetables. Locked doors and supervised outdoor spaces prevent entry by unauthorized visitors.
This is our third child to go through the Episcopal Day School and we would not have it any other way. Each child has been more than prepared to step into a public school 5k program with ease. There has been very little social or academic adjustment required during the transition between the Day School and Public Education....
Our son is the 3rd generation to attend Episcopal Day School. We are so proud and thankful to have him participate in this loving, caring and stimulating community.
