YOUNG SChool PRE-K at sixtwelve: A STRREAMM-LINED APPROACH

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am - 2pm

Our goal is to help students find readiness for Kindergarten through Science, Technology, Reading Readiness, Engineering, Art, Music and Math (STRREAMM). We believe that a holistic approach to learning is best and that it requires discovery through play and experimentation. During the course of this year, September through May, we will be working in the garden, making our own snacks, creating art and music, conducting experiments, practicing reading readiness and more! We will provide enrichment opportunities through fun field trips that will compliment all that we are learning together. 

 

Meet the teachers

Amy Young, Co-founder and Executive Director of SixTwelve, taught elementary school music (PreK through 5th grade) for 8 years at Lakeview Elementary School in Norman, Oklahoma. She has earned a bachelors in Music Education, a bachelors in Art History and a masters in Art History. She worked as an education curator at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art for 3.5 years, leading the docent program, creating curriculum for exhibits,  and overseeing the internship and travel programs. Her passion is people. She believes that learning and growth are keys to happiness and has made it her mission to share those things with others. This PreK program and school has been her dream since she was a child and every step she has taken throughout her education and career has led to its realization. She is ecstatic to welcome your family to this experience.

 

Director of Early Childhood Education - Steve Gooch, is an educator to humans of all ages. He has taught at the collegiate level at Purdue University and Oklahoma City University and has been a part of the Casady School faculty in the Primary Division for the past three years. Steve has a B.A. of Philosophy, a Master of Professional Writing, a Masters of Art Comparative Literature, and a Master of Education with a focus in Early Childhood Education. SixTwelve was fortunate enough to hire Steve last summer to teach and lead a board game design camp for teenagers. We knew almost immediately that he was a great fit with our staff. Add in the fact that he made sweet potato pies for our last holiday pie sale and you have a recipe for being a loved part of the SixTwelve family. Steve lives in the Paseo neighborhood, shares SixTwelve’s love of creativity and sustainability and is a force of positivity for our community. We are so proud and honored to welcome Steve Gooch to our staff and for our PreK students to have him for a teacher.

Young School Info

The Young School meets on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, September 10th through May 14th, from 9am to 2pm at SixTwelve. Arrival can begin at 8:30am. Because SixTwelve is a community education space with multiple offerings, dismissal will end at 2:30pm. (We begin our after school programming at 3pm!) Tuition for three days of PreK is $700/month (we no longer offer the 1 or 2 days/week option as we believe that students benefit from attending all three days with the rest of the class.)
