"Our goal is to provide a quality pre-school education for young children.
We do this by addressing both the social and the intellectual development
of the child. Emphasis is placed on learning the socials skills necessary
to function in a group. We also emphasize the intellectual development of
the child by encouraging a "hands-on" approach to learning.
When children have acquired the basic social skills and developed an
intellectual curiosity about learning, they have the necessary
foundation for success as they move on in their academic career.
Excerpted from the preschool's website
3 year old children join in free play upon arrival for a designated period of time (depending on weather), clean up, have snack, story, play outside and are dismissed. They can also stay for lunch and have an extended day until 1 or a full day from 9-3. The day also may include music activity, flannel board stories , movement activities, etc. Our 4 year olds begin with a group learning activity and then participate in free play activities and follow a similar routine to the 3's. Free play includes art, cooking, cutting, gluing, etc. for both groups. The children may stay for extended day until 1 and participate in enrichment or until 3 for more activities. 4 year olds also have a formal library program, movement ed program, Spanish program and Music program. We take field trips with both the 3 and 4 year olds and have visitors with special skills come to the school.
