​PRESCHOOL

We believe the first few years in a child's educational experience are very important in building a strong foundation for a child's continuing academic success. Our preschool emphasizes on the social and emotional development of each child. We focus on building confidence, self-control, listening and cooperation skills in all three of our classes. We build on our fine and gross motor skills through engaging and creative activities. 

 

All children are assessed individually and regular conferences are held. 

 

Early Learning Class ~ 3 year old

 

We introduce shapes, colors, letters, and numbers. Activities include: dramatic play, puzzles, blocks, manipulatives, art and music. The children participate in circle time, which includes story and calendar. 

 

Pre-Kindergarten Classes ~ 4-5 year old


We use a combined curriculum based on phonics and early childhood content to prepare the children for Kindergarten. Areas of studies focused on are: reading, language, science, math, social studies, music and art. Our curriculum continues to build on their fine and large motor skills through hands on activities and opportunities with physical movement. 

 

Our curriculum includes educational field trips (examples include visting farms and picking strawberries, planetarium with pizzeria, and going to the ballet.) We invite community voluteers to help with special projects such as hatching baby quail and painting pottery. The children create a journal throughout the year; it becomes a keepsake and a nice way to see your child's progress.
