We believe the ABC's, 123"s and colors are important and yet the most important skills we can teach children are problem solving, critical thinking, and literacy. Thus, we use Math and Science as the basis of our curriculum because it's exciting, engaging, and helps children learn the skills they need most.
We also believe in fully inclusive classrooms because children with special needs need to be around their peers and the other children learn at an early age to accept people; regardless of their abilities or appearances.
Preschool is 90 minutes and starts out with children "signing in", sitting down to do a color sheet, and then free choice. Then, we do calendar (about 7 minutes), wake up our brains, and start the first whole group activity. After this, we have snack, books, and finish with either a Math manipulative, obstacle course, or Music.
PreKindergarten is 2 hours and starts out the same way; signing in, color sheet, and free choice. Then, we do a letter of the day, Science, Math, snacks, and books. Every couple of weeks we have a developmentally appropriate writing program with Author's chair.
