Curriculum and center time allows children to choose who they want to play and work with and what they would like to do. Teachers encourage children to try new activities and these new accomplishments bolster their confidence and love of learning.
Group time allows for children to practice sitting with friends, listen and share, and develop a longer attention span. Children are introduced to monthly themes, calendar, alphabet, and numbers during this time. Sometimes a learning game, science experiment, or math activity will be part of the whole group time. Songs and movement encourage memory and body control.
Art and table toys help to develop the children’s fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. Work with markers, crayons, scissors, and paints prepare them from the writing and other skills they will need for elementary school.
Monthly themes encourage specific learning areas appropriate to the age. These theses include activities from all curriculums and provide a variety in teaching skills such as counting or vocabulary.
Introduction of uppercase letters and letter sounds begins to build skills needed to read. Lots of reading by teachers encourages children to love books and helps provide a broad information base.
Our math curriculum includes fun activities that teach patterns and relationships, shape and spatial sense, number of concepts, measurement, and graphing. Children patterns a variety of materials, learn about size using scales and other non-standard measuring tools, and sort materials by shape, color, and size.
Preschoolers are very social. They are learning to cooperate and work with other children. They respond to other people’s feelings and emotions. They accepts and respond to teacher’s authority. They love being part of a group. Our preschool class allows for opportunity for children to practice their growing social skills.
