Young children at Medical Professionals Academy Pre K learn in a safe, positive, nurturing environment. A central part of their learning is their interaction with education students, who observe, plan and implement developmentally appropriate activities in classroom environments under the supervision of the academic coach and certified teachers.

Each classroom adapts to reflect the development and interests of the children and the teacher's style, while aligning with the State of Connecticut's Preschool Curriculum Framework. Students are part of a hands-on, diverse classroom environment that welcomes participation from parents and caregivers.
