Preschool – 4-5 year olds

20160824_093001

In this classroom, children ages four and five continue to explore early literacy and math concepts to gain confidence and build foundational skills. Play-based projects increase independence, provide for social growth and encourage curiosity. Phrases grow to include Me, My friends and My neighborhood.

The daily program is child-driven with a play-based curriculum.  Curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for each child includes In the Kitchen/On the Farm for Language Arts, Handwriting without Tears for letter and handwriting instruction and HighScope Math, which allows children to explore counting, geometry, shapes and problem solving quantities.

During early childhood developmental years, playing together is an important factor in both social and early cognitive achievement.  Our preschool playground is designed to encourage physical activity, stimulate sharing, and promote teamwork with traditional playground equipment, a super-size sand area, an intriguing concrete culvert “tunnel”, and a paved trike “roadway.”  In our Discovery Playground children experience creativity, discovery and early problem-solving as they play together with sand, water, and rock formations.  When children meaningfully engage with each other in a multi-faceted outdoor setting, they are healthier, more inquisitive and more passionate about learning.

Preschool students can attend full time or part time.
