PRESCHOOL PROGRAM

Our Preschool program is based on the belief that children are unique individuals, therefore each child grows and develops at their own pace.

In the preschool class we encourage the children to try their best. Through repetition and practice each child will learn new concepts and develop their progressing abilities. The class works on large and small motor skills, pre-math, pre-reading and pre-writing, as well as dramatic play and the arts.

A portfolio system is used to document each child's progress through samples of daily work, behavioral and developmental observations, photographs and report cards.

Small Group work: On a daily basis, throughout the week, one of the teachers will work with your child on academics or art in a small group. This enables us to give more individual attention to the child's learning and an opportunity to encourage them to try their best with new activities and old skills.

Large Group work: Blocks in the afternoon are often used for group play. The children learn to construct, solve problems and work together as a team.

Bathroom Breaks: Scheduled bathroom breaks occur throughout the day (and of course are allowed as needed). Children should be fully potty trained by the time they come to preschool. However, we support newly trained children through encouragement and frequent trips to the bathroom.

Circle Time: Morning circle is a time to talk about family, weekend activities, school issues, learning themes, calendar, weather observations, songs and stories. This is a valuable time for learning to be with a group, learning to listen and participate in discussions. Along with morning circle time, there are many story circle times throughout the day - in quiet gatherings after play, before lunch and nap.
