From the Director:
The Preschool program at Mansion Day School utilizes a developmentally appropriate, hand-on approach to instruction. Through authentic assessment, each child's strengths, challenges, and progress are continuously monitored. Monthly thematic units constitute the core of the integrated curriculum of language, fine and gross motor, art, socialization, self help, perception, pre-math, science, sensory experiences, music, dramatic play, and children's literature. Skills in visual and auditory recognition, sequencing, and memory are introduced and expanded according to individual needs and ability. Introduction of computers and technology, as well as the Spanish language, is an added enrichment to the child's preschool experience. The ultimate goal of our preschool program is to have children become self-motivated, confident, lifelong learners.
