Nurtured in a Christian environment, the Episcopal Day School program promotes growth in all areas of development: social, emotional, physical and intellectual using the Learning Without Tears play-based curriculum. Since all children do not proceed at the same rate through stages of learning, movement between stages is a process of maturation.
The Episcopal Day School proudly uses the Pre-K: Get Set for School curriculum by Learning Without Tears. It is a research-based curriculum that includes three programs designed to prepare children for school. The programs are Readiness & Writing, Language & Literacy, and Numbers & Math. Get Set for School is play-based with a multisensory approach.

The theological basis for the curriculum is that truth comes from God. God is present in all the school activities. As a church school, the Day School will help each student to understand that the knowledge and service of God and humankind lie at the heart of wisdom and to see faith in God as the unifying force which relates each person lovingly to the home and the world.
