Preschool

Preschoolers (typically 3-4 year olds) enjoy a day full of activities. We offer a full day and half day program as well as a 2 ½ hour preschool program which is available throughout the year.  
Our theme-based curriculum introduces them to a wide variety of hands on activities and each day is thoroughly planned.
The preschoolers begin the school year by working on a letter of the alphabet every week and centering their morning on that letter. They have daily stories about the letter of the week, letter songs, letter art and letter tracing.

Once they have finished all the letters they will work on numbers where they make their own number book to take home. We use Everyday Math by the University of Chicago which is an advanced math program well adapted for this age

They also enjoy working on their pre-reading and pre-writing skills along with name recognition, counting, cutting with scissors and reviewing shapes and colors. In addition, there are daily art projects, music and stories.

Social Studies are very important at this age. We use an interactive program covering all ten strands including Culture, Time, People, Places and Environment, Power and Authority, Change, Geography and more.

During holiday weeks they work with fun themes such as Thanksgiving Fun and The Many Holidays of December.

During the summer months they will enjoy a variety of activities to go along with the themes of Camping, Animals, Sports, Beach, Dinosaurs, Circus, Happy Birthday America and Wacky Week.

Each child is taught at his or her own developmental level and they receive individual teacher attention which is very beneficial to them.
On a biannual basis, we do an evaluation based of age appropriate benchmarks in order to assess each child’s progress and development.
