The social dance of three year-olds is unmatched by all other ages. At this critical period for social relationships, when play turns from parallel to cooperative, preschool aged children are at a prime development level for moral development. When they begin to understand the value of friends, they can also understand what it means to BE a friend. Our developmentally appropriate preschool curriculum includes not only a strong play-based introduction to academic concepts but also a moral component that introduces children to concepts like honesty, grace and respect. Lessons are fun giving the children a balance of child-directed and teacher-directed experiences. The typical day for Preschool is broken up into Large Group, Small Group and Individual learning experiences lead by well educated, experienced and loving Teachers.
Art activities focus on the process of experimenting with a variety of materials, mediums, and textures to create different masterpieces every time.
Daily music time includes a unique, language-building movement component. Their dramatic play center changes periodically encouraging preschoolers to engage in unique, imaginative, role-play experiences. The room is filled with bright colors, interesting photographs, and dozens of theme-related books (rhyming, non-fiction, ABC, picture, books on tape…) enveloping preschoolers in an enriching, inspiring environment ripe for learning.
