Our pre-K program focuses on enhancing the developing skills of the preschooler and preparing for Kindergarten. Our program is designed by DLM and uses hands-on learning and learning through play in areas such as language and literature, science, early math, drama, art, and social skills. Children are encouraged to engage in a variety of literacy activities and classroom enrichments that develop learning and academic outcomes. Furthermore, we use Preschool First to track individual development needs on a weekly basis, make custom learning plans for each child, and maintain a variety of developmentally appropriate activities necessary for optimal learning.
We foster childrens’ development by allowing them to freely express themselves and pursue their unique abilities. We also focus on the importance of communication and social skills that are needed for entering Kindergarten. We encourage children to develop gross motor skills through outdoor play. Field trips include playgrounds, farms, nature centers, and businesses, as well as community sites such as the library and post office. Our teachers help each child continue to develop a strong and positive self-concept as a foundation for future learning experiences.
