Our preschool program is for children ages 3 -5 years old. Preschoolers have a daily routine that includes circle time and small and large group activities, as well as both structured and independent choice activities aimed to allow them to develop a variety of skills, such as sorting, making patterns, learning letter sounds, writing their name, learning shapes and colors, rote counting, learning the alphabet, art projects, developing problem solving skills, vocabulary development, sequencing, following directions, and cause and effect concepts. Our preschool classrooms are equipped with a variety of learning centers such as art, easel painting, math, science, manipulatives, blocks, sensory table, writing, library, and dramatic play areas.
Teachers plan a variety of intentional learning experiences for children based on a unique theme each week or biweekly. Teachers foster socioemotional learning throughout every day as children learn to make friends, share and cooperate in a group, recognize and manage their emotions, develop empathy, gain independent skills, and gain a sense of self. Children in preschool play outside each morning and afternoon on the playground, weather permitting. They develop their gross motor muscles through group activities and physical play in the gymnasium located on the lower floor of the center.
