Preschool (3 years +)
|Our innovative full-day and part day, school year preschool program is filled with investigation, exploration, and discovery. It’s where active and enthusiastic children can refine and expand their skills and knowledge.
Through innovative teaching practices, purposefully-designed learning environments, and enriched activities, teachers ensure preschoolers enjoy meaningful learning experiences that lead to success in school and in life.
The classroom is organized in learning centers of activity, which include: writing, reading, math, science, fine motor, art, blocks, home living, and more. Group times for music, story reading, and active play are planned with the interests and attention span of three-to-four year olds in mind.
A preschooler's day at a glimpse:
Our day starts out as early as 6:45am. Students come in and eat a well balanced breakfast. As they finish breakfast, they have free choice time to explore their classroom and form the beginning bonds with friends and teachers. The first circle of the day explains daily expectations. Thematic units support student learning through the use of songs, stories, and activities. The students observe the weather and complete the calendar. A weekly letter, shape, color and number are introduced and reinforced throughout the week. Students go to chapel with Pastor or join in on Faith Circle and read the very basic stories of the bible and sing songs. The class is provided with chances to play on our beautiful playground or stretch their muscles in our indoor gym. Throughout the morning the teachers provide opportunities for the students to engages in math, pre-reading, and fine motor activities by rotating through learning centers, at their own pace. These skills build the foundations for the Common Core Standards. Full day preschoolers also have the opportunity to do two art projects a day.
