Early Preschool Program
Preparing for Preschool and Beyond
On the path to Preschool, Early Preschool is an excellent stepping stone that is built to meet the needs of 30- to 42-month old children. As they become independent learners, these children practice working with others, following directions, self-regulation, following routines, and developing self-help skills. This program offers:
- Exclusive indicator-based curriculum
- Opportunities to build independence
- Collaborative learning experiences
In this collaborative classroom environment that fosters independence, children learn to work with classmates and follow instructions. Through nurtured independence, children build upon their self-help and self-regulation skills.
- Music & Movement Center: Positive movement is encouraged as this energetic group develops gross motor skills, coordination, and spatial awareness.
- Math & Science Center: In this classroom, children are empowered to investigate and explore using a variety of materials for counting, sorting, classifying, and measuring activities.
- Art Center: Children explore self-expression and their imagination by way of sensory exploration and creative art experiences.
- Pretend Center: It’s make-believe time. Children collaborate to use their imaginations, dress up, and play different roles to expand their creativity.
- Language: This cozy, quiet classroom area gives children an inviting place for reading, playing with puppets, and exploring early writing.
- Block Center: With a variety of materials on hand for construction and creating inventions, children learn how things fit and work together.
