Day in the Life

General School Mission

(excerpted from brochure)

All Saints' Preschool is dedicated to providing a safe and loving Christian environment "where learning is fun". We take a developmental approach to instruction, viewing the "process" as important as the "product". Children are given the opportunity to learn trough discovery, exploration, and interaction with classmates and teachers, making a positive preparation for formal learning.

A Typical Day

A typical fun filled day here at school begins with a welcoming circle time. This is the time of day when the children learn about the focus area and skills they will be fine tuning for the day. The children participate in calendar activities, music and movement, begining math and language development activities and socailization. Children then split into smaller groups to "do their work". The children will take turns enjoying the lessons planned while learning and having fun. When all the classroom has successfully had a turn creating beautiful art and practicing developmentally appropraite skills, they enjoy a healthy snack before heading outside to play. Outside time is a well loved part of our day, with bike riding, climbing, bubble blowing and a loud game of duck duck goose. The children have an opportunity to get those wiggles out. Back inside, the children enjoy social play and learning centers of their choice, while teachers get to play too and guide the children. Lunch time always comes so fast, so after a quick game of Clean Up, the kiddos all sit down together for lunch. Ready for their nap, they potty and lie down to dream about what suprises will be in store later!
