Play is the work of the young child, and your 3 – 4 year old does a lot of “work” in our Preschool classroom. The environment is set up with different interest areas, all with a changing array of hands-on learning materials and toys available. The creativity, confidence, independence, initiative, curiosity and persistence of your child are supported as they dip into new content areas that are guided by our weekly theme. As your child makes decisions about what they do during the day, they are also practicing high level thinking.
The development of language skills continues to occur naturally as your child interacts with adults and other children. Spanish language classes expose your child to the sounds of a second language at a time when your child’s brain has a unique ability to acquire language. Stories, rhymes and music provide playful large group interactions at Circle Time and important emerging literacy experiences.
A written summary each day gives you a snapshot of your child’s day. Additionally, our daily message and monthly calendar allow you to know what is happening at school. Periodically, we meet for conferences to talk in depth about your child’s progress. Our curriculum is aligned with early learning standards that assess the intellectual, emotional, social and physical development of your child.
