At this age, children are constantly questioning their surroundings. Their creations are built with the intention to obtain a final product. Through activities that fine-tune their gross and motor skills, children are given opportunities to trace over light tables. They work with clay, string and natural elements to facilitate learning and experiences. The written and spoken languages begin to take an active role in their lives.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) Curriculum that is Engaging and Fun
Our preschool program incorporates STEAM into exciting experiences for children, aligning with our creative curriculum goals. This is the perfect background of knowledge for the complete development of a child, at their own pace. Your child develops cognitive skills, socials skills and language arts skills.
Parents Are Blown Away by Their Child’s Vocabulary
We often get comments from parents who are impressed with their child’s immense vocabulary. We hear kids saying things like: “Well, this is a very delicate decision…” as they make good use of their judgment, thinking skills, and extended vocabulary. We are continually talking to them, articulating and exaggerating sounds, encouraging their chatter and responding to them.
Play-Based Learning That Is A Solid Foundation For School
Our play-based preschool learning provides ample opportunities to balance and encourage group, shared and independent learning experiences.
Examples of play-based activities include such project-based activities as:
Specialized Computer Time, Three Times a Week
Children are introduced to educational computer games that sharpen their skills that need the most work. For example, should they need to work on sequencing, they can focus on this as we track their development. To this end, kids get 30 minutes on the computer, three times a week.
The Best Trained Teachers Help Prepare Your Child
Your child is guided by highly trained teachers who excel in developing their most genuine zest for learning. Your child experiences a well-rounded blend of play and education, with social skills and self-help habits. Our teachers ensure your child is happy, confident, and fully prepared for the next steps in learning and life.
Preparing Your Preschooler with School Readiness In Mind
Your child’s confidence and independence are enhanced with activities that help them become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Social skills are developed and nurtured as your preschooler is learning how to be a good friend.
Encouraging Your Child To Become Independent and Responsible
Classroom jobs introduce the concepts of responsibility and dependability to your child. We help your child to continue to master potty training if this skill is needed.
