About Us

The Little Wreckers Preschool (LWP) provides children of active Westport Public School employees with a high-quality preschool experience that focuses on educating the whole child. Being housed at Staples High School provides working parents/guardians the comfort and convenience of having their child in a program that is in close proximity to their work environment. LWP is run by Earthplace Preschool and its staff. In our first year of operation the Little Wreckers partnered with the horticulture class, children’s literature class, and high school student volunteers.

Our Philosophy

At Little Wreckers Preschool, we believe that children learn best in an educational program that is focused on the whole child. We strive to meet the social, emotional, cognitive, creative, and physical needs of our students using curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and engaging. We provide hands-on learning experiences in nature and in the classroom setting that allow children to make connections to the world around them. And, we believe that families and staff are partners in fostering a lifelong love of learning.
