Curriculum for Preschoolers Program

Our Preschooler Program is based on the knowledge that Three year olds learn primarily through exploring, and using all the senses. While playing, they are better able to focus at the task at hand and persist at problem solving. Every day we will be involved in a variety of activities. The instruction is hands-on, allowing each child to experiment and explore. The day is divided into Large Group Time, Small Group Time, Free Choice Time, Snack and Large Muscle Time.

 

Curriculum for Pre-K Program

The Pre-K program is focused on providing children the opportunity to develop social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills. These skills will enhance self-esteem and set the foundation for successful learning in any environment and will ease the transition into Kindergarten routines. Every day we will be involved in a variety of activities. Some of the activities are teacher-directed and others are child-directed. The instruction will be hands-on, allowing each child to experiment and explore. Each day the children will participate in Large Groups, Small Groups, Free Choice/Centers, Music and Movement and Snack Time. The Pre-K program is Literacy based in a Language rich environment.
