Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based, Teacher-Led, Co-op

From the Director:

Some of learning centers are teacher-led and other centers are structured for students to work on their own or help from another student. One learning center if play-based.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Students who maybe slower work at their own pace. Students who maybe excelling, we challenge them with more work. Students who may have learning disabilities, we try to incorporate tools to help them.

A Typical Day

When the children first come to preschool they have a few minutes of free play until all arrive. The student who brings the snack that day will ring the bell and we will clean up our toys. We then sit on the Lamb rug for calendar time. Then we break up into groups of 4 and rotate into learning centers where students work on projects that coordinate with the letter, color, shape, etc. we are learning about that week. Next we have our snack and quite reading time. We close out our day with songs with hand motions and recess (weather permitting)

Parents & students come into classroom 1 week before school begins to introduce the families into our classroom and to meet their teachers. Parents may stay briefly to help comfort their children. Children may bring a stuffed animal, doll or blanket to school the first few weeks to help them feel safe & loved.
