In our preschool classroom, the children begin getting accustomed to a more structured environment. While they will still be allowed plenty of time for exploration, they will start participating in daily academic centers as well as a structured and educational “morning meeting”.
At this stage, children will focus on letter/name/number recognition and writing, counting, shape sorting, early science exploration based on STEM research, and fine motor skills (cutting, tracing, etc.). The children will also begin focusing on Kindergarten readiness with lessons aligned to the Core Body of Knowledge and the Early Learning Guidelines.
While there is an emphasis on academics at this age, our programs continue to focus on building social/emotional skills through play-based activities, physical development through movement and exercise, and creativity by incorporating the arts and music.
Visits & Volunteering
Our doors are always open for parent/guardian visits during normal business hours. Out of respect for napping children, we do ask that you call in advance to let us know you will be dropping by. If you decide to drop by during a meal/snack, you are more than welcome to eat the food we are providing with your child.
We also encourage family volunteers in our classrooms. Whether you want to chaperone a field trip, read a story during morning meeting, etc., we’d love to have you! If you have a special interest, skill, or cultural tradition you’d like to share with our classes, please let us know and we will arrange a time for you to join us!
