Double Dose Reading Program

The Rollins Reading Double Dose program provides additional reading instruction for children who need a little extra help to achieve grade-level literacy. Each child receives DOUBLE reading lessons to improve achievement -- one lesson with the classroom teacher and one lesson with the Rollins Reading teacher in a small group setting. Since 2010, the Double Dose program has provided specialized reading instruction to nearly five hundred kindergartners, first graders and second graders. Learn More

Grant Montessori Preschool

The Montessori method provides opportunities for intellectual and holistic growth in young children through discovery learning in a prepared environment. Children learn at their own pace by using all of their senses working with self-correcting materials that support learning through the discovery method. Since inception, the Grant Montessori Preschool has provided a high-quality Montessori preschool experience for more than one hundred children and provided more than fifty preschool scholarships for Columbia families.
