Preschool

Preschool learners, ages three through six-years-old, are offered a curriculum rich in experiences that develop their intellectual, language, motor, and social-emotional development. Through exploration and play children are encouraged to learn through activities of touching, seeing, hearing, and moving while interacting with the environment and each other. Exposure to literacy, art, music, math, science, and social studies in an age appropriate manner helps facilitate curiosity and a love for learning. Predicable routines provide a framework for feeling safe and encourage children to build self-confidence and respect for others. Throughout the school, as well as in each classroom, teachers look for ways to promote children’s interactions with each other to build a sense of community and belonging. Small classrooms of no more than 14 children, with one licensed teacher and two qualified teacher assistants, allow for plenty of individual attention and encouragement.    

A daily schedule includes:

  • Play
    • Many learning opportunities are embedded throughout playtime, such as dramatic play, fine motor, problem solving, social interaction, language development, and time management.
    • Learning activities in literacy, math, science, and social studies are also embedded throughout play time.
  • Literacy time
    • The Letter People curriculum is used to encourage the development of pre-reading skills. This curriculum is a multi-model approach that incorporates music, puppets, visual aids, and hands-on activities to allow children to explore the alphabet.
    • Story time and book time promote awareness of books and print.
    • Literacy-based activities are woven throughout the class routine.
  • Motor and Movement
    • Motor and movement are addressed in informal settings such as during music, playtime, and outside time.
    • Precision Teaching is used in the format of “The GO Fast” game to improve and refine fine motor skills. All of our preschoolers love this game.
  • Music
    • Music is approached both formally and informally. Music is used for preparing children for transitions, exploring the alphabet, promoting movement and imitation, and encouraging language development.
    • Formally, children explore rhythm, tone, and pitch with the help of our music teacher.
  • Art
    • Art is a medium that encourages exploration, creativity, imagination, and sensory experiences. Learning concepts in reading, math, science, and social studies are creatively embedded in art activities.

Schedule

  • Preschool classes operate 4 or 5 days per week during the school year
  • Preschoolers may attend full day or half day
  • Summer program: 5 weeks; 4 days per week; half day; dates and times TBD
