Welcome to Columbia Academy Preschool at Thunder Hill

When you’re searching for private preschools, you want everything on your wishlist:

  • An exciting play-based curriculum
  • An open concept school that encourages exploration, discovery, and learning
  • A nurturing environment ensures the utmost emotional and physical well-being
  • A chance for your child to learn a foreign language and social skills

You can find all of that — right in your own neighborhood — at our Thunder Hill location. Our preschool for toddlers and infants is close to the new Howard County Courthouse and Long Gate Shopping Plaza. So, if you need to take your child for a check-up, you don’t have to miss much work, and it’s easier to attend special occasions at school, too.
Besides the great location, there are plenty of other reasons to apply for Columbia Academy’s Preschool at Thunder Hill to become your child’s private school in Columbia, MD.

Discover Columbia Academy’s Preschool at Thunder Hill

The Preschool at Thunder Hill is part of Columbia Academy, which offers a strong academic foundation for students from Preschool through Grade 8. The Thunder Hill location is one of four preschools within the Columbia Academy system. All of the schools hire experienced educators, who ensure your child has a head start on schooling. When your child enters Transitional Kindergarten or Kindergarten, they join other grades at our location on Old Columbia Road.

Thunder Hill uses the same play-based curriculum as other preschools in our system, but Thunder Hill also offers:

  • An under-the-sea theme throughout its first floor and a safari theme on the second
  • Multiple playgrounds so each age group can play and learn
  • A multipurpose room for days that students can’t go outside
  • Extracurricular activities, such as Soccer Shots and JumpBunch
  • Before and after school care, along with busing to Thunder Hill Elementary School
  • A key code entry system that only allows those with authorized access to come into the school

“This school has been our family for 5+ years. We love the teachers and administrators. . . I absolutely respect and am encouraged by the steps the school has taken to keep my children safe and healthy. I applaud all that they have done to be safe but also give our kids the structure and experiences that they so desperately need. My kids are thriving and happy at Columbia Academy.”
