Our preschool program for children ages 2-5 operate on a full day, full year schedule, with our curriculum programming focused during the “typical” school day hours of 8am -3pm.
Children are provided with breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack to keep their minds active while they are enjoy exploring and learning in their classroom. They are encouraged to explore centers throughout the classroom, engage in activities that interest them, and build their social skills with other children in their class.
Math, literacy, science, and communication skills are practiced every day in our classrooms. Manipulative toys are used to promote eye-hand coordination. Teachers emphasize daily routines and social interaction through family style meals and other small group activities. Picture books, songs and skits are used to increase color, shape and number recognition.
Teachers organize socio-dramatic play activities so children can dress-up and role-play. This develops new skills, such as problem-solving, self-care routines and conversation. Children are frequently read stories to build listening skills and are often asked to repeat the stories to develop memory recognition. To facilitate parental involvement, teachers provide daily sheets to document and share the child’s experiences.
Our teachers assess each child’s development throughout the year, to help guide planning, teaching, and partnerships with parents.
