Preschool – 3 year olds

144_0766

Three-year-old children participate in play-based activities centering on the five senses as they learn about the world around them. Exploration and discovery introduce early learning concepts focused around literature and number sense. Me, My home and My family are phrases attributed to this age.

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.

Preschoolers can attend full time or part time.
